Today is Thursday, and this is a little #throwbackthursday story how Velofocus came to be. I started shooting women’s cycling back in 2015. I only covered the then-new World Tour races, but with my already busy cyclocross schedule, it felt like too much to do on my own – in that year, I was on the road for almost 200 days.
I knew that this one-man show is not sustainable in the long run, so I started thinking about teaming up with someone. After looking around and weighing up my options, I found only one person I could imagine teaming up with: Sean Robinson, who had been covering women’s cycling for years that point. After a hot and busy Giro Rosa, we sat down and started talking and thinking about joining forces. After a few months of ironing out the details, we decided to create a company, in which we both have equal stake. That is Velofocus.
We’ve worked together for over two years, when I suggested, that maybe we could produce a book about women’s road cycling like my books about cyclocross. After some deliberation, we went ahead with the plan and after a successful Kickstarter campaign, we’ve produced a book that we both were really proud of.

So, this year, we’re producing another book and the kickstarter campaign ends this week. You can check out all the details on the 2018 Velofocus Road book Kickstarter page >>>
