Life Never Stops

It's been a while since my last blog.  In fact it has been almost 2 months but that certainly doesn't mean that life has stopped.  In fact life has been busier than ever! I think the main thing that has gone on in my life is that I finally finished writing, editing and approving my [...]

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 [...]

World ParaCycling Championships – ITT

Today I won the Women's T2 category of the Time Trial at the 2014 World Para Cycling Championships in Greenville, South Carolina.  I am a little overwhelmed actually and even though I was fairly confident coming into this race you just never know how it is going to pane out!  I had a nightmare last night, [...]

Murray Bridge Women’s Tour

By | April 29th, 2014|BLOG, Motivation, Racing|

I have never been invited to take part in a main stream Women's Tour.  In fact other than club races 3 wheels never race with 2 wheels.  We do train together but are never allowed to race in State based or elite races.  However this past weekend I was happy to drive over to South [...]
