Mayuko Hagiwara Blog: A very special April

Hello everyone. April was over too quickly this year and we’re already in May. I felt sick in early March and had to change several weeks of my training period so I decided to go to the three consecutive Ardennes races starting from the Amstel Gold Race on the 16th. The Amstel Gold Race has been restored this year and Flèche Wallonne is one of the beautiful and famous races to be held annually. This was the first time Liège-Bastogne-Liège was to be held for women, so this year was the first time that these three races will be held...

Mayuko Hagiwara Blog: From Germany to Italy

I was sick while I was in the Spanish race in early March [Setmana Valenciana] and because my condition was not good, in March I had to miss a few races. I was sorry that my illness meant that I could not continue to contribute to the team. However, since the season has not ended, I pledged to return to my European base, regenerate my condition again and return to the races as a stronger person. From this year I have moved my European base from Germany, where I spent the past three seasons, to Italy. It was extremely difficult to make a...

Mayuko Hagiwara Blog: Belgian Spring Challenges

In February, I had a three-week training camp in Thailand with Japanese riders. Then I flew to Belgium directly from there. It was long transfer and I had not been with my team for a long time, so I struggled a little bit to make my form fitting for the competitions, but I made my European season debut smoothly at the Omloop van het Hageland. Every year, the spring Classic races are very hard and tough for me. I have been racing four years in Europe, and this year is the fifth year but still the Belgian classic races give me a lot of...

Blog: “Thailand..My favourite training place in the world”

By Mayuko Hagiwara After the great experience and racing in Australia, I flew to Thailand for training. Thailand is my favourite training place in the world, to prepare the European race season and I will stay here for the next three weeks. My original idea was to go back to my home country Japan. But it is winter there… so it’s too cold for training outside. So after my careful considerations to adjust for the upcoming hard races in Europe, I chose for training in Thailand. Thailand has easy access from Australia...

Mayuko Hagiwara Blog: Getting used to the Gym…

Hi, it’s Mayuko here. It now really feels like winter as it’s become much colder in December. In this off season, I have been trying the different approach from what I did during the season. What is it? My first ever “earnest” introduction of gym workout to training. Well, it is not really like workouts where you lift barbells and pump dumbbells to be honest, but more like a basic menu where you make a proper balance on your body. My coaches had told me that I needed workout since my body was too slim for an athlete and...

Mayuko Hagiwara Blog: Sponsors and Races in London

Hi, it’s Mayuko Hagiwara of Wiggle High5. After competing in 2 long stage races, Giro Rosa and Internationale Thuringen Rundfahrt der Frauen, I took part in RideLondon, which is part of the new Women’s WorldTour. The route was 5km long in the heart of London.  Although the distance of the race was quite short of 66km compared to other World Tour events, the race attracted large crowds of spectators. I previously thought it would be more of a criterium than a road race, but it was actually fast and furious from start to finish with...

Mayuko Hagiwara Blog: Team Player at the Giro Rosa

After having made a return to the race from rehabilitation in the Japanese National Championships Road Race at the end of June, I travelled to Italy to participate Giro Rosa, which would last 10 days. In this year’s Giro, the team made magnificent results, winning four stages with Elisa achieving the Queen of Mountains jersey. On the other hand, Mara had a badly timed crash on the descent of the Mortirolo, which then made it impossible for us to save Mara’s Maglia Rosa jersey even for a single day. Every day was a tough challenge for me...
