Why Girona?

Why Girona? I was recently asked why I, and so many other professional cyclists call Girona home. It is quite strange when you think about it; hundreds of cyclists and triathletes from numerous countries around the globe, all choosing the same little town to call their home. It’s almost like we’re going back to school

3rd overall at Bene Ladies Tour

I always knew Bene Ladies Tour would suit me, so I popped it down on my race ‘preference’ list. Wiggle High5 sprinters, Jolien and Gio wanted to do the Giro which gave me a free run to put my hand up to go for the overall GC at Bene. In previous editions, Bene has only

Finding my feet

Finding my feet Road racing is tough. Pelotons of up to two hundred riders, all fighting for position, all wanting that glorified win. Pot-holes, ‘road furniture’ and gravel add spice to the racing, let alone crosswinds, hills or slippery descents. When I flew to Europe in February, I knew what I was in for. The

  After 5 years representing Australia on the track, it’s time for a change. I call it, Nettie 3.0. I had a crack at track sprinting, I found my niche in track endurance, but now it’s time to turn my focus to something else; the road. Whilst I signed my first pro-contract on the road

Around Japan in 10 Days: Part 2

October 16, 2016

Day 6. I’m not the betting type but I’d say that not one person has visited Hiroshima and not visited it’s Peace Park. That was the first task for Day 6 for Anneliese and my trip ‘around Japan in ten days’. From the moment we first spotted the Hiroshima Peace Memorial (Genbaku/Atombic Bomb Dome), the

Around Japan in 10 days: Part 1

The Rio Olympics are over. Now what? I’ve been going hard on the bike for four years. I had a month off after London, 2012 and then a second month pottering around on my bike, writing my own schedule. Since then I’ve generally had two, two week breaks per year, after each Track and Road

Rio 2016: Heartbreak to Acceptance

It’s been 33 days since I stepped off my bike at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Shortly after I walked off the track, I burst into tears on national television. This time, it wasn’t the right sort. I wasn’t prepared for this. When dreaming of Rio, I never set my sights on anything other than
