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 […]

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 […]

VEGAS BABY!

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

Well what a week that turned of to be…  A very tough, long weekend on the body that’s for sure and it certainly turned out to have a bit of everything in there. The whole experience was so much fun. My training in Boulder had gone really well in those 6 weeks leading in. It […]

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 […]

My Weekend in Stockholm…

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

I’ve just come home from an exciting weekend in Stockholm, Sweden. It’s a new flag for me which is always nice, I love to travel somewhere new as sport usually takes me on multiple, almost cloned visits to the same locations.  I thought that Stockholm was beautiful place, however it’s extremely expensive and definitely far […]

The Hamburg Love Affair Continues…

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

As usual Hamburg World series last weekend didn’t disappoint. We were treated to, as usual, amazing enthusiastic crowds, perfect organisation and very fast, exciting racing. This is the best event on the World Triathlon circuit by a long shot and it’s always a pleasure to race here. Luckily I’ve always loved racing in Hamburg and […]

Mooloolaba, Gold Coast and Olympic selection

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Things are starting to wrap up on the Gold Coast and we’re coming into the start of the race season again. I’m looking forward to getting home, It’s gone amazingly out here and I wouldn’t change one day. It’s really important to get in a big winter in order to go well for the whole […]

Geelong ITU

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

Hi everyone! Hope they winter is not too cold for you!? Things are going great in Australia.  The weathers been beautiful, the training environment has been motivating allowing us to keep on pushing and the quality of my training since I’ve been here has been consistently high. Happy days! This weekend we headed down to […]

Season’s done (pretty much)

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

I am back home now after a tough past month of training and racing, but my season is now finished now and I’m really excited to relax and recover after my best ever year. Since my last blog it all started to slip through my fingers a bit!  I picked up a bit of a […]

London World Series

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Just got home from London.  What a fantastic weekend. 14th wasn’t the result I was hoping for but I’m happy with my effort.  I was 3rd best Brit which I’m happier with as it hopefully looks favourably towards me with the Olympic selectors.  To be honest the race didn’t suit me yesterday, It’s not how […]

1st place in Schliersee

Monday, July 4th, 2011

Hello everyone.  I’m currently sitting on the EZ 145 flight from Munich to London Stansted, I was on the exact same flight two weeks ago returning from Kitzbuhel excitedly writing my blog after one of my best ever races.  Here I am again sitting in same inhumane position they like to put us in writing […]

A big result in Kitzbuhel!

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

Hello everyone.  I just got back to Loughborough after a longer then necessary days travel!  Phew I’m tired and my legs are way sore! Let’s not waste any time though, every day counts and it’s back to the grind but this time with heaps of motivation after a wicked weekend in Kitzbuhel! What a difference […]

Howler in Madrid

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

I had a lot of fun this weekend in Madrid. It was good to be back on tour with the GB gang and I spent some good time with the team and also some good friends from other countries! It’s the 6th time I’ve been to Madrid.  Same course, (It’s still bloody difficult) the same […]

Great weekend in Paderborn

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

This weekend was the first round of the Bundesliga in Paderborn Germany.  I decided last year that I’d like to compete in the Bundesliga after 6 years of competing in mostly the same races.  I’m really pleased I did because I really enjoyed this weekend and it was awesome to experience new races. Rainer & […]

8th in Dunkerque

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

Lots of racing this weekend.  Well done to my training buddies who raced in Strathclyde, Joel Jameson in his really great Ironman debut (4th in Lanzarote) and everyone else who raced!  What a weekend! Dunkerque wen’t well I guess…actually very mixed feelings about it really. I had to train right up to this one because […]

Nice French Grand Prix

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

Racing for Lagardere in the French Grand Prix is probably my favourite racing for the year.  It’s always a pleasure to meet the gang who by now are really good friends.  We always have a laugh and the other great thing is it’s usually just a 1hr flight away! In on Saturday back home on […]

9th in Sydney Opener

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

This weekend I competed in the opening round of the ITU Triathlon World Series in Sydney before I headed back home after 4.5months. I had a really good winter this year and was waiting for a good result, I was a little bit frustrated with my first 2 races out here in Oz but came […]

Mooloolaba World Cup

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

The first one ITU race of the year in Mooloolaba is done and dusted. I ended up 11th and a bit frustrated but optimistic about the big one in Sydney.  To be honest I thought I’d go a bit better then that but unfortunately didn’t have great legs on the day for whatever reason. The […]
