Well, here we are in 2004 already. Regular visitors to the site will have noticed that there have not been any updates in November '03 and December '03. There have been some technical issues to overcome which stopped updates for about 5 weeks. In fact, 2003 was a bit up and down at times for updates and so on - not the most regular at times - it was a year packed with travel and other work commitments on top of telecomms problems which sometimes prevented any additions to the site. To those of you who looked forward to the updates and kept checking back, sorry and thanks. The good news is that problems encountered in 2003 have now been overcome and 2004 will be the best yet for WomensCycling.net!
If you don't know, or are new to the site, the aim is to provide womens' cycling news, race information and results for you. Of course, that job is helped if you submit results or provide information or photos about events (doesn't have to be racing...) It sometimes takes time to get stuff up, but it usually gets there eventually. 2003 saw a constant stream of information, race write-ups and photos from some regular contributors - to them, a very grateful thank you (& keep it coming). Of course, I have been out and about myself, camera in hand to cover events and these too have been published for you.
2003 saw WomensCycling.net sponsoring season-long series of events in 3 countries. All three series were even supported for at least one race by a 'racing' appearance by "yours truly" - that involved travel to both hemispheres and a season which lasted about 10 months!
The series sponsored were chosen for their active promotion of cycle-sport to novices and that will continue to be part of the criteria for future sponsorship too. If you think your series might qualify for support, contact WomensCycling.net via the "contact us" link. All serious requests will be considered, although please remember that this is a site run for those interested in womens' cyclesport. It has no external funding sources or sponsorship and that means that the size of the overall purse is limited.
I should be sitting here looking out over a warm sunset at the end of a hot sunny day in Australia. But the weather has not been good today. After a 2-3 week period of warmth, sun and little rain, something changed in this corner of the largest island in the world - so instead, the vista is somewhat limited by rainclouds and a cold wind is whistling at the windows. Hopefully 'normal service' will be resumed tomorrow - after all, the Jayco Bay Classic Series goes to Portarlington on Thursday and the riders deserve some early season warmth.....
Check the site regularly for news, information and updates.
Have a good 2004 and happy cycling
