Nettie Edmondson Blog: Time for a Change

Nettie Edmondson Blog: Time for a Change

After 5 years of representing Australia on the track, it’s time for a change. I call it, Nettie 3.0. I had a crack at track sprinting, I found my niche in track endurance, but now it’s time to turn my focus to something else; the road. Whilst I signed my first pro-contract on the road with Orica-AIS in 2013, I still don’t feel like i’ve ever been able to give it a proper crack. It has always come secondary to my track commitments and has been used as a refreshing break, with good short term goals, like the Team Time Trial at the Road...

Nettie Edmondson: “I’m going to go straight on the road”

Nettie Edmondson: “I’m going to go straight on the road”

Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling’s Nettie Edmondson is preparing for her first full road season for several years in 2017, as the former double World Champion and Olympic Medalist moves her focus away from the track.  The 25-year-old South Australian has concentrated almost totally on the boards for the past two years, in a build up towards the Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil, last summer, but will take the opportunity to explore her potential on the road in the period between major objectives. “This year I’ve decided that I’m not going to...

Nettie Edmondson Blog: Aussie Road Trip!

After travelling the world for countless races and competitions, Steph Morton and I decided it was time to see our own country. The Olympics is the pinnacle of our sport – a lot of mental and physical effort goes into preparing for this marvellous event, so as you can imagine the whole process can be rather taxing, regardless of the result. I didn’t set a date as to when I wanted to be back on the bike, but instead focussed on the things at the top of my bucket list; the things I don’t get to do when I’m in full-on training mode. I...

Nettie Edmondson Blog: Around Japan in 10 Days – Part 1

The Rio Olympics are over. Now what? I’ve been going hard on the bike for four years. I had a month off after London, 2012 and then a second month pottering around on my bike, writing my own schedule. Since then I’ve generally had two, two week breaks per year, after each Track and Road World Championship in April and September. I’ve been looking forward to another decent break for a while now, but the problem is, where to go. We travel around the world for this sport, but we don’t often get the chance to truly explore the countries we...

Brazil: Olympic Dreams and Sisters’ Rendezvous

Brazil: Olympic Dreams and Sisters’ Rendezvous

Brazil. Rio de Janeiro. 2016 Olympic Games. It has been all about the Olympic Games for me. After missing out on getting into medicine at University in July, 2010, I desperately wanted to make the Olympic Games. Two years later, I made it to London. I raced hard and came away with a bronze medal. This was great, but it left me wanting more. I therefore set my sights on the following cycle, which was to be held in Rio de Janeiro in 2016. It was a long way off, but I chipped away, focussing on each Track World Championships and European road...

Nettie Edmondson Blog: One Step Closer

Our time in Rockhampton is coming to an end. Six athletes, two coaches, a soigneur, a sports scientist and a gym coach on one Quest hotel floor for 27 days. Of those 27 days, just one was subject to rain, and that happened to be on our day off. That’s why we came to Rockhampton; it’s the middle of winter in Australia, yet we have had near-perfect weather, ranging in the low to mid twenties for over three weeks. That’s meant we’ve been able to put our heads down and get on with our training. Other than a few gym sessions a week, we’ve...

Nettie Edmondson Blog: Nettie’s Top Tips for Ultimate Recovery

When pondering ideas for my monthly blog, I couldn’t quite hear my thoughts over the throbbing in my legs after yet another solid day of training. I suddenly had an idea; why not share some of my recovery tips with some of our most valued followers? Now, I must warn readers, I am no exercise physiologist. I can’t be sure if said tips are scientifically certified and I predict they have altered slightly from the original teachings of my past (or current) physical advisors, however they seem to work for me. Have a look and see what you...

Nettie Edmondson Blog: The Pride of being an Olympian

I still remember the day our coach, Gary Sutton sat my track teammates, Josie Tomic, Melissa Hoskins and Amy Cure and I down the day before the 2012 Olympic Cycling Team was to be announced. We were on camp in Holland, sitting on the lounge in the corner of Sutto’s cabin. He said, “Tomorrow, you will be named an Olympian. You will become part of an elite club for the rest of your life. This is something that no one can ever take away from you.” Those words gave me goosebumps, and they still do today. On Saturday night I was invited to...

Nettie Edmondson Blog: 107 Days to Go

107 days to go. We’re almost in double digits. It’s hard to believe that four years of preparation has almost come to an end. It has been an eventful four years to say the least. I’ve competed in four Track World Championships, three Road World Championships and a Commonwealth Games. I’ve had 9 breaks spent in Australia, Spain, Indonesia, Scotland, Norway, New Zealand and America. I’ve seen teammates retire and new girls push their way into the system. I’ve experienced highs in winning World Championship titles, and heartbreak,...
