Back to reality after an incredible week at @rasnamban living the dream ๐Ÿšฒ๐Ÿ. One thing is certain, the dream is more alive than ever before! Bring on 2019 ๐Ÿคธ

Ras na mBan Stage 6 โœ”๏ธ Ras na mBan 2018 โ˜‘๏ธ . . . . Wow! What an experience! The emotions are running high. I'm so proud of my team mates and friends out here. I'm so proud of myself! I've achieved more than I thought possible here and I'm officially a women of the Ras. Today's stage was a slight disaster for me with a mechanical before the first categorised climb which required a bike change. Awesome fun riding behind the car at 30+mph, then my amazing team mate Claire got me to the finish. To top off this amazing experience TW1 racing have asked me to be part of their team for next year!! Thank you everyone for the lovely comments on all my updates. I'm a very happy girl right now!!! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฎ at Kilkenny, Ireland

Ras na mBan - Stage 5 โœ”๏ธ . . . 2 stages in one day! Everyone I had spoken to was nervous about the crit, and my plan was to get around safely. I actually really enjoyed this stage. The bunch of 100+ eventually broke into smaller groups and I did much better than I had expected. Onto the last stage today! at Kilkenny Castle

Ras na mBan - Stage 4 โœ”๏ธ . . . . Stage 4 was a hilly individual TT of about 4miles. With heavy legs it was always going to be difficult but I gave it my best with the legs I had and my place on GC is unchanged. We race again this evening with a city centre crit around Kilkenny! at Tullaroan, Kilkenny, Ireland

I'm feeling very lucky to be guesting for TW1 Racing here at the Ras. In cycling I think it's always a big goal for a rider to get on a 'Team' because it sounds good or you get some kit. Being part of this team has made me realise the true benefits. From having more experienced team mates give you advice and encouragement. People giving up their time to support us and run around after us. To sharing the race experience together through the nerves and the highs and lows is pretty special!

Ras na mBan Stage 3 - Queen Stage โœ”๏ธ . . . . Today was my favourite stage, the longest and a summit finish on Mount Leinster. I'm feeling more comfortable in the bunch and stuck with the front group until it strung out on the hill top finish in the last few kms. I love this race!! There are School children lining the street to cheer us on and all the locals too. I'm learning so much and feel like I'm getting better each day. at Mount Leinster

Ras na mBam Stage 2 โœ”๏ธ . . . Today's plan was to get more confident in the bunch, despite rainy conditions from the off. I made it up the first QOM in the front group still feeling good and felt comfortable on the next few climbs. I lost contact on a descent and wasn't able to close the gap. Although I got very close a few times!! I finished a few minutes down on the winner. Not bad! I'm loving my first international stage race experience, and have the loveliest team mates and support in TW1 racing! Queen stage tomorrow!

Ras nm Ban Stage 1โœ”๏ธ . . . I felt so scared in the huge bunch with everyone fighting for position on the twisty roads. I got caught behind a crash and came in 5 mins down in the second bunch on the road. On to tomorrow- I need to be brave and fight for my position!! ๐Ÿ˜ at Kilkenny, Ireland

Had a lot of fun racing with these girls today at Yorkshire Road Race champs. 4 of us chased the lead breakaway of 3. Unfortunately I didn't have the kick at the finish so ended up in 7th place. Looking forward to Ryedale GP next weekend ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ . . . . #yorkshirecycling #fromwhereiride #veloskin #myveloskin #girlsonbikes #girlpower #valleystriders #exteondo #ktmbicycles #ktmrevelator at Norwood, North Yorkshire
