With just one week to go before the National 10, this weekend I took part in the Leicestershire RC 10 mile time. It's a nice local race, and a good way of seeing where the form's at before the Nationals, next week.
I've just had a nice break in Wales and managed to get some really ...more
A week after the RTTC National 25 and I have felt rather fatigued. With the build up to the event, careful eating, weight management and training it was bound to catch up with me at some point and no more so than Monday. Any food that was in reaching distance was demolished, unfortunately for ...more
Well it's been a week now since I lost my title in the National 25, taking second place. Normally after a national I'm pretty spent and need a few days to recover but this week as been very different and I've been in overdrive mode. A lot of stuff happened in the 25 that was ...more
As I write this I'm just traveling home from the men's National 25 championships, considered the blue ribbon event in time trialling. It's the event I've always wanted to win and I finally cracked it last year after 18 years of trying.

When arriving at the HQ it was clear ...more
It's fair to say over the last few weeks my head's been all over the place and I've found it hard to push myself, ever since the British Time Trial Championships. Don't get me wrong I've done some good rides, but trying to really hurt myself in training as been very hard. But a few ...more
So, one week left of work then schools out for summer!! With this in mind I decided to enter a mid-week time trial on the R10/22a as work has calmed down and allowed for this. A brilliant turn out for the event with 120 riders down on the start sheet. The Celtic series has proved ...more
This weekend I had the opportunity to ride two really enjoyable events held by Ross-on-Wye CC.
The 10 mile time trial was held on the R10/17 course near Abergavenny. Being a late afternoon event I had the whole morning to get ready and prepare, or so I thought! By the time I helped out some ...more
