UPDATE! Read about the longest ride this bike has done here --> BLOG I am adamant it is the time of year now to bring out the winter steed. So I only saw it fit to show off mine. Weirdly, probably my favourite bike, not because of the bike itself, but the memories that are … Continue reading Bike Check – Horny Tank
I have only just found this. After I wrote this in Martinique I broke my phone so couldn't post it. Having only just fixed said phone...here it is! Yesterday, stage 7, was Bastille Day. With Martinique being a French colony this was a big deal. It also happened to be a slightly easier day, 1,200metres … Continue reading Bastille Day Breakaway

With my end of season break over, today I start training again for next year. With the winter kit now at the top of the draw and the winter bike built and ready to roll, it marks the change to long steady miles and off the bike gym work.

For my last race of the year, I chose the RTTC National 10mile Championships. I've had this written down as a target from the start of the year and it has come around very quickly. I changed my position up a little from the National 25, I think I went a little too low there … Continue reading National 10mile Championships
Up until this year, this race 2 years ago was my best result in a road race. I got 7th that year when the race was a 2/3/4 Regional A. This year the race stepped up to a Nat B E123 and Eastern Divisional Championships, making it an important race for everyone, and it attracted … Continue reading Rapha RR: Eastern Div Championships
With stage 3 of 4 done for my track accreditation, we headed down to the track for some extra track time before stage 4. An early start cruising down the a12 with Depeche Mode on full blast, we met Tom and Nathaniel at the track just in time to get set up for the session. … Continue reading Track innit
Have you ever got to the point where you are 6 days into a stage race and you contemplate getting a tow from the team car with a vine. I have. No one else probably finds this picture very funny, but it honestly cracks me every time I see it. I just find every part … Continue reading Anatomy of a Photo: Pre Stage Shell
