Nearly time to race

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

So the bike is geared up and the bag is ready and waiting to go. All that’s left is to get to bed and wait for the 3.30 alarm! I’m excited to be racing again, as I said yesterday, it’s one of those iconic races to tick off.

Transition days

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

The last week has been a whirlwind of driving up and down the Interstate 5 from LA to San Diego and back with my side kick Joe Gambles. Joe had a number of sponsor commitments and I was keen to go see some friends down there, including web team mate Lesley Paterson. We managed (somehow) to fit in […]

Trek/K-Swiss team camp

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

New team, new kit, new bikes and jet lag. – It’s all go here in Santa Monica, north of LA, at the K Swiss headquarters. Lots of fun stuff happening, a little bit of training and a tonne of learning and some terrible hair styling all in the name of team building……??

Clearwater 2009

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

I’m home, I’m unpacked (well, the bike can well and truly stay where it is for a little longer, let’s not get carried away) and feeling a lot closer to human after the travel. Therefore I have had some time to reflect properly and objectively about Clearwater at the weekend. I still stand by my initial […]

A bit of a Gamble…..

Sunday, August 30th, 2009

Joe Gambles is a friend of mine from Australia, who I’ve known for a few years now. We both seemed to start racing the 70.3 events around the same point in time, and last year we finished within 10 seconds of each other at Clearwater …. this year however he has gone on to race […]

The past few days

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.

Into Thin (Palomar) Air.

Ironman 70.3 California 2009

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

Unfortunately I am reporting a DNF from the race today in Oceanside, however, on the plus side of things I had a great swim/bike out there which has given me a good indication of how I am travelling right now. I have had a problem in my lower leg for a month now, and although […]
