De Panne, Belgium
Ended the classics campaign yesterday with a 4th in De Panne. The wind was strong and the speeds were high all 155km. It was so fun to ride the gutter together and split the field at one point, and I’m really happy I stuck to my plan and sort of almost pulled off the result we were after.

Obviously feel a knot in my gut to fall short in all 3 of the big chances I was given but maybe that’s fire in the belly for next year..?! It’s a tough game but have to look at the whole picture and realise all the things I’ve overcome to be in the mix again.

Although there’s one more race on my program next month, I’m taking a short break now - Reflecting on the year already I’m so thankful to my friends @tompetty89 @indiamclean1 @samderiter and Philly who got me through some of my hardest months to date. Thank you, legends. I would not be here without you 💕

Flanders 2020. Loved racing with the strong @mitchelton_scott ladies - thank you for a fun and supportive day out.

Just as much mental energy as physical goes into this special race. The emotions were high after crossing the line in 5th - so close to that prestigious podium but actually super far. It hurts. My team mates @_g_brown and @annemiekvanvleuten were so impressive. What a day. We’ll be back.

Today we line up for Gracie’s grand finale as she recently announced her retirement. We’re going to go out there and have fun in Flanders, one of her favourite places with great memories finishing a close 2nd in 2018.

These photos are some fun memories on the road with Gracie. We’ve shared so many highs and lows racing together for 6 years but I’m really going to miss laughing till we cry basically every time we meet up! 😂 😭

Congratulations on your awesome career @gracieelvin 🥳

Sending @samderiter - the ultimate friend - some birthday love across the world in Melbourne lockdown.

Thank you for always being there for me and sharing gems like this one exactly when they’re needed 🥰; “Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow”.

You’re the best. Happy birthday! 🥳

Gent-Wevelgem
A good day at Ghent-Wevelgem. Thanks to my team for the opportunity. I’m really happy to have had better feelings in my legs and be up there in this final move. Finishing just off the podium is always a bit of a bum but it was an exciting race with a bit of everything; gravel, cobbles, wind, rain, hills, tumbles, and thorny bushes, and I’m looking forward to the next one!
