Little drummer buoy

Vicious Cyclocross happened today. It was wet, Warhead played drums and I accidentally made Phil Glowinski take a dip in that big puddle... Good times! Train tracks Steps

I spent a couple of weeks in 2012 following Cannondale Factory Racing riders Marco Fontana and Manuel Fumic for a feature in issue 12 of Privateer. Cool guys and top level XC racing is great.
There are more photos on my Flickr and there's a story on the Women's race at Houffalize over on the Privateer site.

Grenzstein Trophy

Grenzstein bike-338, originally uploaded by Andy Waterman.
I rode this crazy event back in June, 1200km along the old inner German border. We slept in the woods and rode for 14hrs or more per day, existing on a diet of whatever we could buy in Lidl or the bakeries we occasionally passed. At the time I hated it; looking back, I've mellowed to the experience. It was epic, and by far the most extreme thing I've ever done.
We featured the race in issue 11 of Privateer, with words by Aidan Harding - he sums up the event brilliantly. There's more photos on my Flickr too.

Photo story for Rapha

When Rapha asked if I wanted to join them on a ladies-only cross ride around Chipping Norton, I jumped at the opportunity (and the promise of a good lunch after the ride). The story's on the Rapha site now, photos by me -
