KISSES AND ROCK&ROLL - Some good training done, made a lot of switches and changes! it’s all good, just remembering to stay flexible! - cuz life yo... Shit happens 🤷🏼‍♀️ - Finding the good solutions to great problems sometimes take A plan b, c, d, ... It’s all good tho! Keep your mind wide open 🙌🏻 - BEXT STOP : off to basque country for @emakumeen_bira ❤️ absolutely love this place, absolutely love this race !! Ima mountain kinda gal, ima stage race kinda lover 🥰😘😘

The universe expending, means that at earlier times, Objects/ person would have been closer together - There is no absolute time. Instead, each individual has his own personal mesure of time that depends on where he is and how he is moving. . . 🙏🏻📸 @velofocus . . 🙏🏻📝 Hawking . . #mondaymotivation #physics #stephenhawking #spaceandtime #wntrotor #wwt #china #fromwhereiride #roadslikethese #friends #time #outdoors #outsideisfree #happyisfast #builttolast #ridefightwin #procycling

Fridays are good days to take your thoughts for a stroll.... or a bike ride ! To those who work at the office, only a few hours until the weekend 😉 📸@therealrhodri

Being nervous is a good thing. Being nervous means you care. The capacity of caring means the capacity of loving. And we care about what we truly love 💕 😘 . . @therealrhodri again for the beautiful shot

Making time for PREhab. Even 30min off you day can prevent weeks and weeks of recovery for stupid little injuries. - I’m finally able to enjoy only having to focus on being a pro athlete and not a MKG student anymore. It is so hard to balance school work and cycling at the same time, especially if you are a little OcD and perfectionist like I am. Having write over 100 pages on branding strategy and race a belgium #WWT belgium classic the next day is definitely challenging. I am not complaining at all or making any excuses, I am totally owning the fact that I put myself through these challenges. It is very difficult tho and I have to admit I have been struggling at races, the pressure I put on myself to perform is probably the reason why, and I know I have to learn to be nicer to myself and forgive me for just being human! - We are all normal humans, sometimes we do incredible things, sometimes we do shit, it’s normal, it’s life 😉. - BUT FOR THE TIME BEING. I’m very happy to get to enjoy life as a pro cyclist for a couple months and will be back at the brain gain in september 🙃😇.... (still have finals to come but it’s not stressful! I know I am ready, I know I will A it 😘)
