After a full weeks recovery from the crazy team antics on Bute I was ready for my next MTB race, which was round 2 of the Brownbacks race series at Lee Quarry near Rochdale. Having finished 2nd in round one I was looking to go one better this time out. Setting out very early in […]

A weekend away racing had been on the Velo29 cards for a while. September soon came round and the team headed off to the Isle of Bute, just off the south west coast of Scotland for a couple of days of bike racing and partying. We packed the cars and set off on Friday afternoon […]

Well another tour done and dusted.  A flat day so I thought what the hell and went with every attack I could thinking I might as well try for the ‘most aggressive rider of the day’ jersey.  After 7 circuits of a fast pace and constant attacks, me being in 3 small breaks, it was […]

Well, it’s been quite a long time since I posted a blog, so what happened? I burned myself out, that’s what happened! My winter training went really well and I was chomping at the bit come the start of the season but my big mistake came back in October when I didn’t have any rest […]
