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 … More Bastille Day Breakaway

One of the most old fashioned and out dated aspects of cycling. Pinning on a number is an art form. Pinning on a number badly instantly signals you out to everyone as a little bit of a whopper, whether that is at a road race or a time trial.

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 … More National 10mile Championships

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 … More Anatomy of a Photo: Pre Stage Shell
Considering the week I’ve had. I will take this result. It isn’t the result I had been hoping for from this race as it has been a big target for me all year, but I gave it everything I had on the day and the power was not as bad as I was expecting. I … More National 25
I’m currently on the bus on the way to stage 6. The third of three very big days. All 110+ km with around abouts 2000m’s of climbing. We are heading into the unknown now…I’ve raced for 5 days before, but not 6. The stage starts out hard today, the first 20km is packed full of … More Solo break
So as some of you might know. I am now out in Martinique, racing a 9 day stage race. Here’s roughly how the first few days have gone… Before that. It’s hot. Don’t mention my hair. The first stage was 125km on what here is “flat” terrain. There was more elevation than I do in … More Helping teammates and forming grupettos
So you may have noticed (you probably didn’t) I’ve been a bit quiet over the last few weeks. The truth is it has been pretty tough month for me now. Ever since finishing my heavy block of training and winning my first national title at the Circuit Champs, I’ve been faced with a lot of … More IoM!
