“hey can you help out? kinda itchy there 🤣” Race hangover isn’t appropriate for this morning! Still day dreaming of a team that’s starting to come together in the best type of fashion!!! This really shows how #happyracersgofaster - team work starts way before the race 😂🤪 as you can tell by the nice pic from the boss Dirk

spot the erreur, little climber with a bunch of bigger Rouleurs 😏 Was a fun day out there, tried a lot of attacks and ended up in the move of the day👆🏻but in the end it came down as a bunch sprint and... Well still working hard/ hardly working on them sprinters legs 😅🤷🏼‍♀️ .📸 @anton_vos

RACE DAY—> been doing Borsele for years now but yet first time starting at the TT ! . Piece of mind: I’ve always wondered if perhaps we saw colours the same way as everyone else? imagine, if my reds were your blues? and if in fact we all had that same favourite colour but it was named differently for each one of us? Where i’m trying to go with this is, as we grow we learn first from our immediate environment, then from society and our own experiences about the world. We learn to affection some things and to despite others. But I’m wondering, about how much of that is stained by preconceived assumptions based on our own bias? When looking at my race schedule I was obviously not that excited about racing in Holland for so long this spring, although I decided to come in with the mindset of a baby just eager to discover! it truly opened my eyes on this beautiful place!! And if i used to hate traveling here because I hated to struggle in the dutch races, now I found myself in love with the country! Loving the little villages and all the fields and the small roads etc! this also allowed me to change my mindset on the races! and instead of fearing them, I see it as a great challenge to over come and each little improvement becomes a massive victory 😊 So maybe, by working on killing these assumptions I learned how to see the colours of this place from someone else’s eyes! This Is A Moment Of Growth, And It Is Beautiful 😋 #happyfriday #friyay 📸@velofocus

This Team, these Girls 👌🏼 . . Bit of ups and downs, loads of wind, some mechanical problems load of catch up to do and keep working on building a strong 6 pieces unit! but happy we got through and used the good training ! @aafkesoet finishing it up with a stellar win☀️🤩 #lifesgood #hat18 . . . . #roadstoride #thecyclingculture #fromwhereiride #bikefashion #endurance #burningcalories #happyplace #happyracersgofaster #outdoors #outsideisfree #playoutside #roadslikethese #ridelikeagirl #BuiltTolast #teamwnt #ROTORbike #ROTORbikecomponents #2INpower #otefuelled #goodnessin #orbeaorca #RideFightWin #myorbea #OrbeaWomen #orbea #powerwatts #nobullshit

It was a bit chilly out there now, what do you think ?? eh eh I didn’t think I’d discover a new state of frozen, especially coming from Canadian winter but... It’s good to be back racing 😊 📸 @anton_vos . . . . #frozen #rain #roadstoride #thecyclingculture #fromwhereiride #bikefashion #endurance #burningcalories #happyplace #happyracersgofaster #outdoors #outsideisfree #playoutside #roadslikethese #ridelikeagirl #BuiltTolast #teamwnt #ROTORbike #ROTORbikecomponents #2INpower #otefuelled #goodnessin #orbeaorca #RideFightWin #myorbea #OrbeaWomen #orbea #powerwatts #nobullshit #powerwattsquebec

“in dreams begin responsibilities” these are the words I live by, so much I’ve got them tattooed on my skin. Speaking of! I’m super happy to announce my 1000th change of plans for 2018🙈 initially i had planned to step back a little bit and built up back confidence with racing in the US for the first few months of the season, but I couldn’t turn down this new opportunity that came up to race with the @wnt_rotor pro cycling team! I am very proud to be representing the team and to race with familiar and totally new faces! I am grateful for them to welcome with with wide open arms and also super blessed to have such an amazing village behind me believing and supporting me! it’s been a year almost since my crash and it took a very long time to get back to my ideal level. big shoutout to @thek2, @paulo.saldanha and @powerwatts, @powerwattsquebec, @velo_classic, @suzannepilote, @rayfort14, @lisdana and everyone else that played a huge role in my road to recovery. Will be kicking off the season soon, meanwhile enjoying some time off in the Alps (favourite place on earth) training and getting everything dialed for this year’s race season, the snow isn’t to different from my usual now is it? 😂❄️ #turbolife, quote by Williams Yeats

occhiolism- n. the awareness of the smallness of your perspective, by which you couldn’t possibly draw any meaningful conclusions at all, about the world or the past or the complexities of culture, because although your life is an epic and unrepeatable anecdote, it still only has a sample size of one, and may end up being the control for a much wilder experiment happening in the next room. - @thedictionaryofobscuresorrows . . . #fromwhereiride #dayslikethese #roadslikethese #pch #ocean #california #rain #rainyday #occhiolism #dictionaryofobscuresorrows #besutiful #writing #inthemoment #present

Elements where against us but we eventually made it here

The answer is sometimes to go along with the adventure ! Found new roads, broke some rules, harvest some nature goods, broke some bike, finished up with good coffee! #wasagoodday
