Suffering while summiting Mount Baldy! ๐Ÿ” It was three tough days of racing at @amgentocwomen this year. No podiums for the team, but getting closer with a 4th & 5th on two stages for me, and we finished with @juliettelabous as the best young rider! Thanks for all the support out there, I enjoyed being back racing on North American roads!!!โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ„โ€โ™€๏ธ . . . #MountBaldy #ATOC #ATOCWomen #California #creatingmemories #keepchallenging . ๐Ÿ“ท @encinovelocyclingclub

California girls! โ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒŠ Finished 4th on stage 1 of Tour of California. Van der Breggan soloed to victory after attacking on the climb 5 km to go, then we had a sprint for the podium from a small group behind. Time to find my climbing legs as we summit Mt.Baldy tomorrow! ๐Ÿ” #ATOCwomen #ATOC #California #creatingmemories #keepchallenging

Had some fun jumping into the local Ontario race scene yesterday at the OPC criterium! Had to plan my sprint tactics carefully, as I knew @jamiebikies was racing with @cpendrel magical unicorn jersey powers ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿฆ„ Thanks @lcw_racing for the great event. It was also nice to meet lots of young up-and-coming local racers! ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ“ท@canadiancyclist

Nice to end the spring season with @teamsunweb on the podium at #LiegeBastogneLiege! I was feeling chilly so went for a 40 km breakaway, but unfortunately a mechanical took me out of the front group after La Redoute. Luckily @floortjemackaij and @lucinda_brand played it smart in the final, finishing 2nd and 5th in the end after a strong day of teamwork!๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒง . . . #LBL #Canadianconditions #LBLwomen #creatingmemories #uciwwt #keepchallenging

Last of the cobbles the team will see this spring with @brabantsepijlofficial today! We had the numbers in the break with @floortjemackaij, @corynrivera and myself, but unfortunately a win wasn't in the cards and Coryn sprinted to 3rd. Legs are toast after 100 km driving the breakaway, time to recover and get ready to go full gas again in the Ardennes!! ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿšฒ๐Ÿ’จ #BPwomen #keepchallenging

Ronde van Vlaanderen ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ช A special race with an incredible atmosphere! The team was hit with some bad luck as the day unfolded, but we kept adapting and stayed focused on the future. I hit the ground pretty hard before Kanarieberg, but thankfully could get back to the race in time to keep supporting my teammates towards the finish. We ended with a strong 9th place for @lucinda_brand after a tough final! ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ #Flanders #RVV19 #UCIWWT #creatingmemories #keepchallenging

Went full sprinter mode with my helmet & glasses combo for #3daagsedepanne today ๐Ÿ˜Ž. 5th place for our little Norwegian bullet @susanneandersen in a chaotic bunch sprint. We did well to adjust our plan for the leadout after some bad luck losing numbers in the final. Send good thoughts to @lucinda_brand who took a hard fall, but is thankfully okay. The Belgian racing continues this Sunday with Gent- Wevelgem! ๐Ÿ“ธ@velofocus . . . #sprintmode #belgium #springclassics #cycling #uciwwt #creatingmemories #keepchallenging
