My year of racing coming to an end- YAY!

27 November 2008

Since the Gravity 12 hour, it has been hard to train.  Really busy with MTB Skills, life in general and other responsibilities.  Really looking forward to doing some fun social rides JFK(just for kicks).

Have sustained a graze that is pretty sore due to a high speed crash on the weekend too.  Very timely.(NOT!)

Really looking forward to racing the Kona 24 hour on home turf too.  Its sort of relaxing knowing all I have to do is ride for 24 hours and ride the trails I know so well.  I have been deliberatly NOT riding them much as I want them to be exciting, not boring.  Norm is pretty excited as we have a few solo riders fronting up from our RDS squad.  Jac, Kirstin, Phil and Gav are all having a crack.  A few teams too, with Adam and Liz joining the 2 TCF teams as well.

So after the Kona - I have some fun again.  (not that riding for 24 hours isnt fun)

New sponsor Giant - great new road bike coming hopefully before Christmas, if not early January!  Check it out:  http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-AU/bikes/women/2200/32368/zoom/
