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 […]

Update

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, […]

Introducing my new Team…

Monday, January 20th, 2014

Looking back and forward…

Monday, December 30th, 2013

I hope you all had an awesome Xmas and have a great, prosperous New Year. I can’t wait to get 2014 started. Got a few new exciting changes for the next season and I’m convinced it’s going to be some of the best years I’ve had coming up! Lots of change in my world recently. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
