Trek Speed (weapon) Concept!

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

So I made it to Florida in one piece (longest and worst immigration Q’s aside) and am now safely at Carolyn’s house and in familiar homestay territory for April time. AND I had this amazing piece of kit sitting in it’s cardboard box awaiting me – of course I had barely got my ruckack on the ground […]

Today in the Shire

Friday, April 16th, 2010

I had a good day at home in Stirling today. I began the day with an easy swim which I needed since the last few days have been pretty full on training-wise. – That training was made all the easier by the stunning weather we have had this week (see blue sky below for proof) … to the […]

A visit to Shimano

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

“It is never not cool in here!” – That was the comment I got from one of the many mechanics as I had a guided tour around the Shimano facility this morning. I think my jaw needed gently pushed shute for the majority of it! – Like a  kid in the sweetie shop just about describes it. I guess they know […]

Ready to rumble…. at last.

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

New Felt frames

Friday, March 20th, 2009

I headed down to the bike shop this afternoon to have a proper look at my new framesets, and generally get excited about all the new stuff! I should have at least one of them ready to ride (and show you) tomorrow. But for now, have a look….

Presents from Shimano

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009

I’m like a very big kid at Christmas right now …. but I have dragged myself away to post a quick blog! Shimano have very kindly agreed to supply me with all things bicycle for this season, through my bike sponsor, Felt. Today I was given A LOT of kit – most if is in […]

Profile Design

Monday, February 9th, 2009

I’m really pleased to say that I have just signed with Profile Design for this 2009 season. I will be racing in their wetsuits and – for the warmer swims – speed suits. I will also be using their aerobottles, bottles cages and other hydration components.

My new Felt DA bicycle

Friday, November 7th, 2008

I am pleased to say that I will be racing here in Clearwater on my new Felt DA. I’ve been training on the bike for a couple weeks now, but I only just got the wheels in time for race day, so I thought I would get a picture up of the complete set up.
