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 […]

my two pence worth….

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

So there has been 3 very interesting races so far in the newly formed ITU World Championships Series. The most recent just having been in Washington D.C. I pretty much eat, sleep and breathe triathlon and therefore would happily describe myself as a tri-geek. Or perhaps as a ‘student’ of the sport? Either way I […]

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 …..

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 […]

GavinNoble.com I would imagine you have already been a regular reader, and if not, why not? The newest member of our small, but every growing tri-web family (otherwise know as the Nekada Triathlon Team) is the ever endearing Irishman Gavin Noble, known for his tact, and his ability to beat around the bush. Em, NOT. – He says it as it is, and […]

Back on track. I think.

Monday, March 30th, 2009

My first full week of training here in California is done. It’s been a busy week. But I think I have got back on track in terms of swim, bike and crucially, run. I have been struggling with a niggly pain in my lower leg for a few weeks now – ‘I am running, I’m not […]

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 […]
