Kasia Niewiadoma: I can’t wait to start racing again

Hello everyone!

First of all I would like to thank Voxwomen for giving me the chance to write and share with you the stories from my crazy life. 

After a long and rough 2016 season I have spent a few good weeks at home. As always I planned to go somewhere for a great, unforgettable holiday but in the end I decided to stay in Poland and take great pleasure in spending time with my friends and family.

But as they say everything good comes to an end!

So my off-season is already behind me and I have started the preparation for new goals.

In 2017 I am riding for WM3 Pro Cycling Team. We made our first steps at the beginning of January with a training camp in Calpe, where we had a good opportunity to get to know each other, in a team of new girls and staff. The 10 days went by pretty fast… maybe we weren’t spoilt by weather though as the last days were freezing – rain and even snow! But we had a lot of fun together, not only riding the bikes and talking about cycling but we also managed to climb the famous rock, which gave us unforgettable memories and views! I highly recommend doing it, for those who wants to visit Calpe.

With a good block of training done, I could feel that every day I am stronger and stronger. This year I have started to train with my new Coach Arek- who knows me since I have begun my journey with the bike.

Honestly I can’t wait to start racing again! Building my shape, being surrounded by a team that helps me in every small detail and the Polish federation, who take good care of me, make me want to compete and fight for the best results.

I know that the first races are pretty scary for everyone, nobody knows their position or how hard they were training during winter. I have the same feelings! Especially when I have to start in Belgium Omloop het Nieuwsblad… I have pretty bad memories from last year. Later I will head to Italy for one my favourite races Strade Bianche

I have also moved to Girona where I share an apartment with my teammate Lauren. It’s quite a big step for me and the first time I decided to leave my family house and start living on my own. So far I am super excited about it! Hopefully it will not change during the season although I know I am super sensitive person and I may feel a lack of family around me. Luckily the Girona-Kraków flight takes only two hours so it’s easy to go home.

I am happy right now. I feel in good shape and ready to open another chapter in my career. Fingers crossed and see you next time.
