Lucy Garner Blog: Part of a Winning Team

Lucy Garner

We are well underway with the season and I have just competed in my first European stage race. Before competing in Holland at the Energiewacht tour I competed in GP Dottignies, it was a fast and aggressive race and as a team we worked amazingly together by following attacks and protecting our sprinter Giorgia. I was happy that I could position Chloe and Giorgia coming into the final kms and seeing Giorgia cross the line with her hands up in the air was really special. It brought a lot of confidence for the team!

Knowing I had a stage race coming up the rest day in between finishing dottignies and starting Energiewacht tour was very important. I did an easy spin on the bike, re packed my bags and tried to rest as much as possible… oh, and the best part, eating lots 😉

I am a born racer so I actually love taking part in different stages day in, day out.

It was my first time on the TT bike and the first event was the TTT. I was nervous going into this event because it isn’t my strongest point but as a team we really rose to the challenge and put in a good performance finishing 5th considering having only 5 riders and our first TTT together, we walked away a proud team!

The rest of the tour went ‘just ok’ for me. I felt good but having crashed three times it made the racing tough as I had pain in my back preventing me from putting full power down on the pedals. Luckily no big injuries so the recovery is going well and I’m training as normal.

I’m very much looking forward to my double weekend, especially Sunday as it is pretty much a ‘home’ race for me in Holland. Lets get racing! ?
