Challenge Fuerteventura

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

I’m really happy, and relieved to be sitting here in Fuerteventura on my post race ‘Over Drive’ training camp with a close 2nd place finish in Challenge Fuerteventura under my belt and as a result confidence back where it needs to be to be successful in this game.   It’s only 2nd place, I’ve had […]

South Africa

Thursday, February 25th, 2016

Hey everyone, I hope you’re all well. At the moment I’m sitting in my apartment with my feet up in South Africa trying to ride out a bit of illness picked up somehow/somewhere. I’m not sure what it is with this place. I really love it, the weather is unbeatable, you have amazing food and […]

Winter training, Laurent Vidal, Sands Beach.

Saturday, December 5th, 2015

All in all it’s been a fairly decent start to my winter training. I had around 8 weeks of un-interrupted training with the Luc Van Lierde programme and I was chuffed because I didn’t miss a thing and I was going pretty well as a result of it. I took a trip to Belgium to […]

Back to the drawing board…

Friday, October 23rd, 2015

  I hope everyone had a fantastic season and you were able to enjoy a nice long break afterwards to recover! If you’ve not been following me, I wrote off the last half of the season as I was getting burnt and racing wise was no good to anyone in the end. My Psychologist made […]

Enjoying the time off

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

I’ve enjoyed this first 4 weeks away from sport. Nothing that exciting so far, just hanging out with my family and I just payed a visit to legendary Irish Triathlete Conor Murphy and family who’s also been struggling this year, thanks to shitty coaching and support. Nice to compare notes! Slowly but surely I’m starting […]

Taking some time out

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

Well it’s been an interesting and un-expected end to this first part of the year that’s for sure. I knew that things were not going well for me this year for some reason. I felt like my training was going quite well, perhaps quite inconsistent but on the whole I didn’t see much problem with […]

Debut Ironman Experience – Lanzarote

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

Well, I can officially call myself an Ironman I guess, what a huge day trip that was in Lanzarote. I felt like preparation went ok for my debut Ironman. I can’t say I was in top shape at all, just didn’t have the time to get that, lets say I was inconsistently good!  I personally […]

Some nice photography from Uplace BMC Mallorca camp.

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

We had a decent camp in Mallorca, big thanks to the Best Centre for having us. Great pool! We did some really big days. Like the 6.5 hr day before the Mallorca 70.3 Champs.  Then the 180km ride at close to average race power. Didn’t feel great but Ironman pace isn’t that fast and most […]


Monday, May 4th, 2015

Hey everyone! It seems it’s been quite a while since I last updated my blog which leaves me with quite a bit of gossip! Since I last checked in I was getting all excited about going to Challenge Dubai and posting a solid performance there before running off with the Triple Crown Bonus! It didn’t […]

Big camp in Spain done and now all eyes on Dubai

Thursday, February 19th, 2015

Just finished a great camp in Spain. We were staying near a town called Huercal Overa. South coast of Spain. We were actually in a little village just outside, staying in this huge villa.  The weather wasn’t that great actually, we were quite unlucky, the pool was too cold even for an ice bath on […]

Uplace BMC team camp at Sands Beach.

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

A belated Happy New Year everyone! Lets try to make 2015 our best one yet! Check out out amazing team video! Things have been going quite well for me, before Christmas we did quite a bit of free speed stuff! I have to say that I felt like I was doing all the marginal gains […]

2014 season down. What’s next?

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

Well, that’s it. I’ve decided to call it a year. 2014 was one of my favourite years so far. All in 70.3’s I’ve taken two wins in Wimbleball, and Lanzarote. 3 x 2nd places in South Africa, Calgary, Barcelona. Then I finished 10th in the World Champs which was very satisfying if I consider I […]

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 […]

10th 70.3 World Champs.

Friday, September 12th, 2014

Mont Tremblant 70.3 World Champs and the big goal of the year finished for another year. It didn’t all go smoothly, but I’m feeling proud of how I executed my race and how I over came the adversity to rescue a 10th place and the last prize money position. It was the best 70.3 I’ve […]

First 70.3 win at Wimbleball

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

It felt great to finally get that win this weekend in Wimbleball. When you race big races every time it can be a long time between winning races unless you’re the best! We had beautiful weather in Exmoor finally, even hot at times and the whole course glistens when it’s like this. It has to […]

Barcelona and onwards.

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Hello everybody, thanks for tapping in. Things are going well for me as we hit half way through the season. I’m just getting stuck into a meaty taper for UK 70.3 down in Wimbleball and I think I’m probably coming into some of my best shape of the season so far. It’s all very nice […]

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, […]
