The Spring classics and the new Ardenne Women’s WorldTour events are already a distant memory.
Voxwomen will be at the Women’s Sport Trust Be A GameChanger Awards this evening.
We have been nominated for Media Initiative of the Year at the Women’s Sport Trust Be A GameChanger Awards, up against Sky Sports cricket coverage and the Red Rose England Rugby campaign.
Shortlisted from a selection of nominees by an esteemed panel of judges, the vote was then made open to the public and tonight, we will find out if we have done enough to pick up the top prize.
Founder Anthony McCrossan and team member Kim Keay will be there.
It is an honour to be recognised by the Women’s Sport Trust as we strive to change the game for women’s cycling and female riders all over the world. We are very proud to be nominated for an award that reflects the very best of women’s sport coverage after just over two years since Voxwomen was created in February 2015.
A huge thank you to anyone who voted for us – fingers crossed!
More women are riding bikes, all over the world. More women are racing and the demand for high-performance bikes has never been greater. But does the bike industry give women enough choice and the spec for high performance?

I’m lying on my bed after a huge dinner and the traditional team meeting.
During days like this, I always think about how hard our staff are working for us, day and night, in order to make us the best cyclists we can be the day of the race.
She is the most decorated female cyclist in US history, and has won 71 national medals in 12 years of racing. But in 2012, Coryn Rivera almost quit the sport altogether, as her love for cycling wained and she struggled for motivation. Fast forward five years, the pocket rocket has just claimed her maiden World Tour victory, with a stunning sprint to claim Trofeo Binda, the third round of the UCI Women’s World Tour.
‘Once is enough’.
The words of an old teammate, Patricia Schwaager, (when I asked her what racing Flanders was like) echoed in my ear as I was, seemingly, going backwards on a cobbled section in my first Flanders – only last year.
Friday, October 7, 2016 – I sat down in a chair in a room with six other patients as a nurse inserted an IV drip into the top of my hand. The room was full of medical supplies and machines and seemed a far cry away from my life as a professional cyclist. This was my first chemotherapy treatment for stage IV cervical cancer.
