2018 was my first year covering the Strade Bianche. It turned out to be an epic in many ways. Firstly, there was the issue of even getting to the race, “The Beast from the East” winter weather was in full swing in the U.K and my first scheduled flight was cancelled due to the snow. My second flight I couldn’t get to, but the third flight, I made it - it only took me 48 hours from door to door! The same bad weather pattern ended up making the race one of the wettest and best races for photography - so, I can’t complain.
