Photo Report – 2014 Season Recap
Emily Batty September 18, 2014

With the 2014 race season well on it’s way to being wrapped up, I can’t help myself from reflecting on all the good times had and the many successes along the way. This year was one of my best races season’s yet and not just on the racing front but also personally. Each year I get the opportunity to grow as an athlete, travel the world while racing my bike and I also I get to meet so many amazing people and fans along the way.  These are just a few of the reasons of why I love doing what I do so much.  Thank you everyone for the support and love!

Below are a few pictures with captions:

Seeing my new Pfaff | Porsche Cayenne for the first time was more then memorable.  I'm very grateful to have Pfaff Auto as a sponsor and be part of their family.

I love Australia.

The podium contenders flip flopped each World Cup this year.

My European race campaign absolutely sucked but I quickly got over it and regained control for the later half of the season.

Although my legs didn't come to the party in Europe my mind did and I still fought hard for every World Cup point.
