"

At the moment when I crashed, we were racing hard and fast. Gracie [Elvin] was in a break with one other rider, which was a great situation for us. I was near Emma [Johansson] and JMac [Jessie MacLean] near the front of the race when we came around a right-hand corner where spectators were standing pretty much on the road. We had minimal time to respond.

The spectators panicked and started to move out of the way. As I tried to dodge them, one of them moved in the same direction as me. There was no avoiding the impact. We were doing over 50 kilometres/hour, so we collided hard.

Sadly, the Belgian host broadcaster completely ignored the race, despite the presence of cameras, production staff and broadcast infrastructure.

Fans were crying out for coverage, updates, information. But there was no live television. No online feed. Big problem.

Maybe I’m just cranky from sleep deprivation, but we’ve been beating this drum for a while now, in time with plenty of others, and it was yet another huge missed opportunity, while the demand for televised women’s road racing continues to grow.

By now, the standard response to the lack of TV coverage is some tired variation on, “Yes, but there’s not enough interest and producing a live telecast is expensive,” but the online clamour for information demonstrates how absurd this position is.
