1st Lanzarote 70.3

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

I had an amazing week in Lanzarote. Took a big, hard earned win against some great athletes, caught up with 1/2 of the Uplace-BMC Team and spent lots of time relaxing before and after the race at the Active Sands Beach resort in the sun.  I have to say that things were really rolling in […]

Uplace BMC team camp and what’s next.

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Hey everyone. It’s been a decent start to the year, three 70.3 races down in South Africa, California and the Caribbean and now onto my next one in Barcelona. It’s been a pretty chaotic and busy start but after this things will settle down a bit spending the next 12 weeks at home and not […]

Trying to crack the USA!

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

As usual another epic trip to the USA done and dusted and now back home before the next adventure in Mallorca for a Uplace BMC team training camp and race! Its been a strange year so far. I’m not too sure where I’m at really. Ever since I started training this winter I’ve been struggling […]

2nd at South Africa 70.3.

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Hey everyone.  I’m just getting back to Stellenbosch after a pretty successful but epic weekend of racing in East London, South Africa.  I like coming to this race because it’s on my way to my favourite training destination and also gives me a chance to see where the form is at early in the year, […]

Finishing the season on the podium :-)

Monday, October 7th, 2013

This weekend I was competing in my last race for 2013 the Lanzarote 70.3. The last race of the year is never usually pretty for me. World Champs the biggest race of the year has usually been and gone and I start to get very tired and a little de-motivated. After 11 years racing I’ve […]

Ready to rock Vegas!

Friday, September 6th, 2013

  It’s finally here, World 70.3 Champs in Las Vegas this weekend. You can watch the action unfold live on Sunday from 3pm GMT here. I’m really buzzing for this race, but nervous! Trained really hard for this one, and think my fitness is in a good place to be ready for it. I’m still yet to […]

Reflections on Boulder

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Things are going well in Boulder in preparation for the highlight off the year on many people’s calendar the Las Vegas 70.3 World Championships. You might have noticed I’ve been pretty quiet the past month. I’ve not raced once, opting for a long preparation training camp instead. I wasn’t exactly ready to deliver a great […]

Racing update

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Hey everyone. Hope you all having great summer and thanks for checking by. It’s been a big month of racing my end with 4 big races in the past month. To be honest it’s not ideal when it works out this way especially from a performance perspective because you do start to get tired, underprepared […]

Overdue Update

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Hey everyone, it’s certainly been a while since I’ve last updated my website blog properly, apologies for that. You might have noticed that with most bloggers they only really update when things are going well for themselves! I try not get into this habit as everybody has good and bad times this but this time […]

2nd at St Croix 70.3

Monday, May 6th, 2013

Super happy to finish on the podium of this prestigious 25 year old race today after what can only be described as completely BRUTAL conditions. I guess I happened to have a bit more luck than others today and survived the “Beauty and The Beast” with the fastest run split to boot! Congrats to Richie […]

Snowy Boulder in Spring!

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

So it is STILL snowing in Boulder Colorado, the state which apparently has 300 days of sunshine a year! We have had 5 days of snow since we have been here and it’s starting to really frustrate me now… I cannot stand indoor training, especially riding on the turbo – but it’s looking like one […]

Final few days in Stellenbosch

Monday, March 18th, 2013

So I am already in my final week here in Stellenbosch after being calling it home for 11 weeks this winter! Time has flown by, and after mixed feelings about how it has gone I will be on the plane back to Blighty on Saturday ready to brave the cold yet again. Luckily I will […]
