So I started this blog as a way to share my cycling adventures with you all - what a year 2013 has turned out to be!

The corkscrew - Adelaide TDU
  • I've raced in ACT, NSW, VIC and SA
  • Covered over 11,600km on and off-road by bike over 513hrs in the saddle!
  • Found and enjoyed the alternative universe of Veterans Cycling 
  • New toys - Specialized Amira, Quarq power meter, Garmin 810, Wahoo Kickr, Thule wheel carriers and roller duffel, Dyma Disc wheel cover!
  • Been on TV for le tour prologue
  • Working with a new coach - Mark "Fenz" Fenner
  • A broken collar bone, surgery and a month off the bike to rest, recover and regroup
  • Over 50 races at club, state and national level with 25 podium placings - it has been a successful year if you measure it in medals!
  • Over 8,900 page views of the blog - thanks for reading :)
MTB fun - I said it would never happen and I raced 2 separate 24hr races!
Thanks to the sponsors that have come on board in 2013 to help me achieve my goals:
  • Kosdown Printing and Spicers Paper for the comfy kit and race entry
  • Specialized for my gorgeous Amira road bike
  • Bike n Bean for my bike bits and servicing
  • Thule for all the racks, luggage, travel and Mountain Bike Adventures
  • Sukkie Hydration

There are also awesome supporters who help me out that are the BEST in the business:
  • Torq
  • FTP Coaching
  • Aussie Butt Cream
Amira - we're inseperable!
What's coming up for 2014? 

A whole new set of goal races, travel to new and old parts of Australia for cycling, (maybe) a new car for all the bikes and travelling. New team members and new battles on the road. To keep things sharp, a few training camps and some cross training in the snow! Also, stay tuned for more opportunities for women to race casually in team events over 2014 and a unique opportunity below:

If you're up for a challenge and to kick-start your 2014 of racing - apply now for the Kosdown Performance Cycling Scholarship (male u23 and female open age).  You set your goals, and together with KPC they help you achieve them! It really is a great partnership to launch your cycling into the next level. Entries are open until Jan 31st 2014.
