The last week here

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Well I didn’t do as I said I would – and get a post up on Sunday about the week that was … and here we are on Wednesday already. Time seems to fly by, but that is no excuse. Here are some of the things I have been up to; A run with the […]

Racing anyone?

Sunday, July 12th, 2009

Whilst I was continuing my aquaintance with the rare air there was a lot of superb racing happening in Europe (and a bit in the US too!) – makes you want to get out there first thing in the morning and rip it up. Well, at least get out of bed early…. ….which is exactly […]

Holland Visit

Friday, June 19th, 2009

Gav and Will are in D.C, Dan is in Arkansas (i think?) and Conrad is in hospital in Richmond. Blair is back up North (and on the longest w/e in Scotland that means very little darkness which is really cool) in Inverness ready to hit the Highland Cross tomorrow morning. He’s been training regular enough and […]

The team rolls on …..

Stirling Triathlon 2009

Sunday, June 7th, 2009

I had a fun day today – firstly racing, and then mostly helping out – at the Stirling Triathlon which included the Scottish Schools Championships. I like racing at home when I can, and the Stirling Triathlon Club have been very supportive of me so far, making it all the more worthwhile being able to give a little something […]

I’m struggling slightly….

….to think of anything meaningful to blog about. However I will push on regardless and see where it goes.

Check it out at triathlonteam.org The essential online triathlon resource […]

Totalsports Challenge shenanigans

Monday, January 12th, 2009

Saturday morning was spent watching, cheering and ‘seconding’ at this local, but extremely unique multisport event a bit further down the coast. The Totalsports Challenge (totalsports.co.za) comprises of 7 seperate disciplines, and equates to what must feel like an ironman – taking the winner, my good friend Dan Hugo (dghugo.com), well over 6 hours to […]

The legendary ‘4 Passes’ ride

Saturday, January 3rd, 2009

Caught in the act ….. that there on my lap is a pie. A chicken pie. I think if nothing else, South Africa has an affinity with Scotland in its love for the Pie. The things is I would never usually eat a pie at home.  Funny really that when I ride the 4 Passes route – all 128 […]

Alpe d’huez in South Africa!

Saturday, December 6th, 2008

Wow! Baptism of fire, or something like that ….. Dan Hugo tells me there is ‘hill climb’ low key type affair being organised by his father, so I was more than happy to go along. Oh. My. Word. 14.7k, topping out at close to 1600m with a average gradient in the region of 8%. It […]

Xterra Maui World Champs 2008 recap

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

I watched online via the xterra.tv link, and that was pretty cool – the swim and finsh at least….the in-between-bits were a bit too much fuzzy-helicoptor-heights and catch-a-glimpse-if-you-can but hey, better than nothing.
