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 […]

It’s been a good first week on the Gold Coast. It is a long way to get here though, I’m not going to lie…that journey is a nightmare. We finally got here 3 flights later and we were greeted by RAIN, lots of RAIN! It’s not really stopped since I’ve been here! We’ve literally not […]
