I wanted to chip in the 10 years challenge!!!! From one sport/job to another!!!! 2009/2019 @lara_viec told me yesterday “I see how you’re not an easy daughter to your mother!!” 🙄 ahahha maybe y’a I’ve always had some sort of attraction to unconventional lifestyles 😂 Ok but maybe I’m a bunny when it comes to food! I’m definitely a cat with many lives when it comes to ... anything else !!! Missing the slopes and the FRESH ... air 🤷🏼‍♀️💎

clearly Germans don’t have the same definition of freezing cold like the Canadians 😅 it actually felt like a nice spring ride ahaha , AKA the coldest weather by far here 🤔! Gotta say there’s no such thing as too cold tho when you’ve got the proper clothing 🤷🏼‍♀️ just saying !!

-Power of human -Power of feelings -Powers of words, so beautiful but yet so painful. There are some terribly terribly heavy lyrics but yet so dazzling and stunning, so well written! I burst into tears every time I start the album! @tirelecoyote 👏🏼 / J'ai connu tous les débordements Ceux qui vous arrachent les nerfs Si on les compte en évitement J'ai contourné cent fois la terre Mes satellites sont sous l'emprise Des ondes soumises à la folie Mauvais signal, quand vient la crise Mon seul canal, la nostalgie Je veux faire fondre ton absence J'ai senti ses pouvoirs de glace Quand les flocons ramènent l'enfance Pose tes mains sur mes crevasses Apaise-moi dans le silence - (Tempting to translate this) I wanna melt you absence, I felt its iced powers when snowflakes bring back childhood put you hands on my wounds soothe me in silence . hopefully this makes sense to you! I love the imaging in all lyrics and how metaphors can draw feelings in the most magical way!

What can I say! What a year! Thanks to all my 💎💎 wish you all the best for the next year! I’m excited for all the new adventures to come. 1. Show up. 2. DARE to surprise 3. Believe 😉

PURPOSE COURAGE PRESENCE - Forget about new year resolutions. I came in 2018 fresh and open minded, without any concrete plans but with these three mantras in mind to conquer every challenges I would face. This year ended up being one of the most amazing year of my life! I got so many amazing opportunities and came across and ton of new diamond people that truly changed and rocked my world! I think that the biggest difference was that; - I approached every actions with purpose, - hardships with courage -and moments with presence! Setting mantras was a game changer for me and on my journey to become a beautiful human, a strong athlete and a happier bunny! It will be hard to come up with new words for the next year, but I still have a couple days to make my mind still! I hope you had a great year too! TELL ME; can you come up with three words for the next year? COMMENT BELOW, inspire me - the others - inspire yourself ✨. Love Gaby

#tbt to the great gravelly roads of the bubble. The count down has started only 4 days left to 2018. Amazing how time just flies by if you don’t make sure to slow down and catch the gem moments. There’s no place like Boulder in my heart, it’s a treasure hidden in the middle of colorado, found it 6 years ago and always try to fit a visit in every I can (means when i’m on the continent for longer than 2 weeks) 📸 @samisauri

All packed up and ready to go back home for the Holidays! I don’t even know where to start!! I’m so great full for this year, all the people I’ve met and where the wind brought me! I will do an other post about all my superstars of 2018 later but for now! @kathrinhammes made me realize maybe I am very good at making friends !!ahahah I guess my willingness to believe everybody is a beautiful human at first opens my heart and mind to them and truly had me meet the most amazing people and lived the most incredible adventures! People can call this been naive but I don’t see it as anything wrong, contrary. I want to thank all the peeps that made my most favourite pre christmas training camp ever! firstly @wnt_rotor for providing such support to all of us who came and rode here, obviously my teammies (@kathrinhammes @lisabrennauer @cskoster @clara_koppenburg @aafkesoet) Because they are the best chicas on the planet as far as i’m concerned! and also huge thanks to @auber93cyclisme , @laura_weislo and @sebastiendesplanques for being such help with technical things! @pimheenl to also help with my bike and yesterday’s guys @pellomutillo and @arm6nd0_0rteg0 who finally fixed my bike and got me through the last 12hrs of training. Oufff that was long sorry for that! 43h done and dusted for 2018 !!! let’s see what the next year holds 🥰😘👌🏼

#tbt to enjoying rides with my little Koppenburg 🥰 remember one of our first rides we got along at first sight and carried on our friendship until now! I remember that particular day in majorca very well and I can tell we were probably the only ones day dreaming about future plans ! ☺️ 📸 @velofocus

Some white faces working on their tan were flying up and down the spanish roads today 🤗 Oh how nice is it to finally ride long rides in shorts !!! cheers to the last training camp of this year and the first with these @wnt_rotor ladies 😘😍🖤

All of us girls getting ready to set this year on fire 🔥

All I wanted was to be able to get some food inside of me so I could make the most of these mountains!! Mission accomplished ☺️ I got over this bad food poisoning! Finally, and got to play in the snow a little 😏❄️ Weirdly I have been very sensitive to anything I eat, and got so many food poisoning in the last year! I’m not sure if it has anything to do with the one time I got salmonella??? If anybody knows if there’s a correlation! I’m all in for some scientific explanation 🤷🏼‍♀️

Pretty excited to head back to this happy gang for our Christmas @wnt_rotor kick-off camp!!! 😍❄️ One last spin this morning and then the long travel begins!

Gotta love testing days! not because of of they feels but because it means I’m on the move again! I learn with the years that I was a naturally borned diesel engine, it has its good and bad, one of the bad being that lactate threshold tests take longer 😅 🤷🏼‍♀️ But hey!!! Gotta love the pain, Gotta love it 😘

3hr of this feels more like 6hrs of pain ! But I’d rather feel pain than nothing at all 😏 -SUPER MERCI à Stéphane chez @performancebegin pour le super Vélo ! Stéphane a été celui qui a trouver mon premier vélo de route quand j’avais 8 ans et encore aujourd’hui, c’est le meilleur supporter que je pourrais espérer!!! 😘🤩🤓

This makes me so Happy to look at !! Ahahah who seriously doesn’t love playing in puddles and getting dirty? I am so excited to go back outside, especially now that the winter is officially here and strong ... Ya i’m counting the nights ;) - Speaking of Getting Dirty!

I’m sorry Ive got the wrong helmet, but I forgot mine at home, little did I know it was gonna be warm enough to take my gravel bike out for a spin! Didn’t plan to bike at all today but I had to go and support my little running monster while she was crushing the 3,50/ K going up the mont royal this morning!!! She was a super star, she impressed all the walkers and I couldn’t be more proud!!! .#marathontraining #mtlmoment #montroyal #notsponsorcorrect #sorry #playoutside #outside #outsideisfree #fromwhereiride #fromwhereirun #running #cycling #twins #superstar #loveher #outdoors

They said ribs hurt until they don’t ! They were right! We did not do our trail running / camping trip as planned, but getting to go out in the mountains today with this little power pocket was pretty special 🤗 Tomorrow starts the biking stuff again! But i’m so stocked my pain is almost completely gone
