Honey Badger sighting! There’s few people who can give me a smile as big and as fast as the man, the legend @ramunasnava .

The peloton is a funny place, you have friends in all of your teams, but only time can be the litmus test for the bonds you have forever. We raced together for years, won a lot together but still, we only ever talk about things that have nothing to do with the bike and only lift each other’s spirits. He even turned around mid effort on his TT bike to see me, so you know, I think it goes both ways. Love you Noonas

The infamous @pelotonbrief completed another lap around the sun today, so my gift, a lap around Girona on a scooter. Think she rated it. If your not already following her for the funniest stories in the peloton, you should start. She’s well funny

I’m covered in about 10,000 small cuts from the off road adventure I just had. The wettest spring followed by an intensely hot few weeks has the trails a little overgrown and spiky as a Backstreet Boys 💇‍♂️ haircut
Another hour or so to get home, so let’s hope I don’t bleed out.

Tired of following me online? I’ll be sprinting full gas down this strip in a few weeks time at the @ridelondon classic trying to get my wheels in front of others on a finish line. I’d love to meet you all at the finish at the @katushacycling bus! 🚌
Hope you can all make it

Living my best life

Long Post Alert 🚨 💥 ⚠️ So this past week for me has been pretty hard mentally, I’d been working so hard with my blinkers on, all distractions aside to get back to the TDF that since being given then big N-O I’ve been a bit lost on what to do and where to begin my day.
To not make this a self centered, broken athlete style post I’d like to tell you about my day, because it was a great reminder of why cycling might just be the best thing in the world.
.
I’ve been having trouble getting on my bike, not really knowing what to do with my form, shut it down, let it flow, build, it’s hard.
@pelotonbrief knowing me well, suggested that we take a road trip to visit @philgaimon to go ride the @chasingcancellara
At first I had to giggle, a fondo? No way Man. I should be at the TDF. Then I thought about it. I love my bike. Phil is an old friend. Switzerland is beautiful and it will force me to ride my bike 😝

I was a little timid turning up to the event, because I realized I’d be talking to one of my all time heroes coming through my early cycling years, having fought with him in some of the most insane classics like Strade-B, telling him I’m here because I kinda have no plans for July. What happened? He told me about the years he got the same call saying he wasn’t right for the TDF team. Spartacus! Not getting a spot!??? Ok, I’m not on his caliber, so you know. Gave me some perspective. It was great to see him looking so healthy and happy in his retirement. It’s inspiring in a whole different way.

3000m elevation in 80km and I loved every pedal stroke. I met Phil’s friend @jeffmahin who’s a celebrity chef & owns 11 restaurants... 11! And Natasha @badkarmamonkey killing it with @traderjoeslist I am inspired by people who are so capable in life who also have fun. Need to learn that from him😎
So I rode with Jeff, Phil and @fabian_cancellara all day and it just reminded me of one thing. The bike brought me here, the people I’m surrounded by are all here for the same love and flow we get in life from the bike and that not much else matters. When your mind is clear, you can start looking forward. .
.
Huge thanks to Fabian and his event for having me, and team Phil.

‘Don’t hate me, cause I’m doing me better then you doing you’
Normally never ride at 6am, but the @chasingcancellara is early so clear mountain Morning roads for breakfast! .

When your Girona crew is trying to cheer you up and they take you to Zumba? Yea, it’s pretty much the best party you can have in Spain before midnight. I won’t lie, by the end of the class I was a mess, respect girls, that’s no joke. Amazing camera skills here by the ever rad @pelotonbrief and thanks to @maceystewart for being my spirit guide on those deep snaps, bend, and snap #spiritfingers .

You don’t always know who somebody is going to be when they walk through the door. Over 60 years of making custom shoes for professional cyclists has the @sidisport library of foot moulds freaking me out. Each cyclist had to start somewhere and at some point they got their first pair of cycling shoes. I won’t drop names of those that got theirs here, because there’s too many, but what I loved the most about this wall is that at least half of the names are of retired cyclists. For me, the feeling when Signori Dino ( SiDi) himself and his daughter personally gave me the factory tour, it was then I knew that they don’t just do this to make shoes, they appreciate that they have been part of the rich history of cycling. Pretty incredible day.
