Upper Austrian Tour

What a great week of racing! Although there were only 4 trikes involved, this tour was an extremely valuable experience. I got to race with the fastest male trike rider in the world, Hans-Peter Durst from Dortmund, Germany. The lessons I learnt from riding right behind him were fantastic and although I wasn’t able to [...]

I’m sitting here in San Francisco waiting for my last flight to get me back to Toronto for Christmas, people watching and wondering where everyone is going?

I have to say that as busy as I am I love my life and the last couple of weeks have really brought that home to me! It started with a mini-camp with my wonderful friend and team-mate Alex Green. Alex and I used to row together and it was her insistence that I come [...]

As I sit here with a glass of wine to celebrate the last day of 2014, I'm reflecting on the year that was.  For me it was a fantastic year with many highs throughout the year.  For others it was a year of sadness, heartache and the unknown. Our world has been a place of [...]

Today was the last day of the 2014 World Para Cycling Championships and it was also my last ride of the competition in the Road Race.  I had such a good ride during the ITT that I didn't think it would be possible to have two perfect rides!  I knew that the day was going [...]
