A visit to Trek plus a visit from SRAM

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Before I raced at Racine 70.3 last weekend I spent an exciting few days in Madison staying with our legendary Trek/K-Swiss team mechanic Mark Andrews and his family …. it was exciting on at least two fronts: 1. I was getting given my brand new Trek Speed Concept – here is a preview of the bike I did for SRAM […]

Today we rode LONG – ‘5hrs, 150k and hilly’ long – here is me with Ironman 70.3 World Champion Mikie Raelert before we started outside K-Swiss HQ. – Note the loss of hair?!?

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 […]

Perhaps rather unimaginatively I have attempted to cobble together two seperate (and quite frankly unrelated) topics in order to avoid having a post title along the lines of ‘Photo’s for Norwell – Part II’….

Photo’s for Norwell

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

After the early morning swim here in Stirling ( 21*100s on the 1.15/1.20 cycle broken) I wolfed the cereal, had a run up and around the uni, and somehow fitted in a visit to physiofocus before heading up the road to Aberdeen. The weather here at the moment really is superb, and I apologise (only a […]

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….

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.

Compression by SLS3

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

I have been making very good use of my compression socks during the past 10 days….. which is exactly how long I have had some out here in Stellenbosch, since I forgot to bring my own when I flew initially.

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.
