September- A mixed bag of feelings, emotions and results.
Firstly, sorry for any of you who take the time to read some of my race reports, I have not produced one in some time. My apologies.
Sport is a funny old game and performances and form come in circles. In the beginning and middle ...more
Well today I was hoping to report how I'd finished the season off in style. Sunday morning, I took part in the national circuit series finale. I've already won the series overall but this final round would decide the outcome of the Ron Kitching trophy for the most consistent rider of 2015. All I needed ...more
After the men's National 10 I've hardly had time to recover and I was off to Denmark to take part in the Amateur World championships. I'd won the selection race back in June at the Tour Of Cambridgeshire, so this was always going to be my major goal of the season to try and add ...more
It feels weird writing this, but I've decided that 2015 was going to be my final season of just riding time trials. I've done everything possible over the last 20 years since I won my first title as a junior all the way back in 1995. And I've had that many medals I've lost count, ...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.
Today I went in to try to defend the title. I knew this was ...more
