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 […]

Scottish Duathlon Champs 2009; Shire

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

The last week has flown by, hence the lack of posts since I departed the South of Spain. – I got home last Wednesday and spent a nice few days back home. Those days included some good swims sets with the squad, a couple bikes rides wearing shorts(!) and a couple trips to Physiofocus to […]

Notes from St Petersburg

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

To say the past week has been stressful and hectic, would be a bit of an understatement, and so updating my website took a back seat. I’ve got some stuff to write about now mind you.

It’s all about the bike.

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

I’ve been racking up the miles; the Felt(s) and I have become much better friends over the past 10 days, which is no bad thing. The running still isn’t happening – but I am aiming for shuffling along once more by this w/e, providing the physio gives me the go ahead.

Ready to rumble…. at last.

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

So the day before the race (the evening in fact, lets be honest) I get the rig ‘ready’ to go. I met up with the guys from Shimano today whilst I was down at the bike shop (store here in the USofA) and they were showing me the new electronic gearing being brought out later […]

A ride in the hills.

Friday, March 27th, 2009

I had my first longer ride for quite some time today; 4+ hours…… it has been a good month or more since I crept into those digits. South Africa seems many moons ago! Faced with a choice of bike now (it’s a tough life) I opted for my AR1 (again!) as I am really loving […]

Ta da!!

Saturday, March 21st, 2009

I don’t want to go on and on about this, but me getting these new bikes is way cool!! So, I am showing you MORE pictures of them – now as the finished articles. Well, not quite, since I need some tubs to go on the race wheels for the TT bike….but i’m not racing […]

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 […]

F.A.S.T!

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

I’m just back in the door from checking out my bike with the race wheels on – before I head down to the race site for briefing and bike racking etc etc. I was offered a shot of a Zipp 1080 front wheel to race on from one of the members of the tri club […]

Riding in Miami

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

I was out on the bike course for the Miami International Triathlon yesterday evening, and I came up behind a group of guys, which prompted me to take a picture, cos you just wouldn’t see it in many other places I doubt!! It is after all only March.

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.
