February has been a reasonably solid month of training, with a couple of races thrown in. The first was a local race at the North Harbour club in Albany a couple of weeks ago. I just took one bike and was racing in the Senior Superclass event. I managed to make the final amongst some tough competition, and somehow came away with second place after a pretty mediocre start. We had our clubs annual meeting on the Saturday just gone. Unfortunately due to our track still being out of action we were forced to host the meeting at the Mountain Raiders club's track in Lloyd Elsmore Park. It was a fairly low key meeting, so it was back to age group racing in the 17-29 mens class, again just on the one bike. The class wasn't huge but there were a couple of quick guys there to make things interesting. I traded wins with one other rider throughout the day, but managed to get the better of him in the final to take the win.

The countdown is really on to Easter and the National Champs now, with less than five weeks to go. There aren't any more major meetings in the run in, but there are a few smaller meetings scattered over the next month, mainly in the Waikato, that I will look at entering in the build up to Easter. I am also entered in the CrossFit Open, although a niggly shoulder which doesn't affect me on the bike at all, stopped me from doing 15.1 - hopefully there are at least a couple of workouts that I can have a nudge at!

Well this summer will well and truly be one of the busiest.

At the start of October I travelled to Australia to play for ACT in the domestic competition. It is my second season with them and I absolutely love it. It's a great opportunity to challenge myself against Australia's best. The facilities are amazing and it's nice to be playing in warm conditions at this time of year.

White Ferns duties start at the end of October with Sri Lanka touring for the first time and we have games in Christchurch and Nelson.

After missing the June tour to India due to work commitments I can't wait to get out on the field with the team.

  • The 40km Time Trial was not a good race for me as my body suffered from the heat and had a significant impact on my performance, however with a days rest and recover we lined up for the 147km Road race.
  • I had turned up to the race believing I could have a very strong ride, in the early stages of the race I made it in the lead break away. Not very often in the one day races a breakaway survives for the line honours at the end, but this time was different. with 7km to go I attacked my break away companions and won the Oceania Title solo across the finish line.
  • The win earned me enough ranking points to become the leader of the Oceania Tour for all the UCI ranked races in its region.
  • The final of these races was this weekend in Cambridge at "The Rev". With a bust season the fatigue has certainly started to set in and I rode in a more supportive role to one of my team mates Patrick Bevin helping him win the race. At the conclusion of the Rev I had rounded out the summer season officially becoming the Oceania Tour champion.
  • Next up is Tour of Japan in May, but the training block will be very specific and see me training all around New Zealand. First must come rest to look after the body so I can once again hopefully feel that winning feeling.
