On The Road Again

By | September 6th, 2015|BLOG, Racing, Training|

Every time I leave the house to go to a competition whether it be in Australia or Internationally that Willie Nelson song pops into my head “On the road again, just can’t wait to get on the road again” and further on in the song "Goin' places that I've never been, Seein' things that I may [...]

On my way to winning Gold Today was a day that I never thought would ever happen...winning my 3rd World Championship Individual Time Trial!  It just still, 10 hours later, seems surreal!  But it has happened and I couldn't be happier, I don't ever want this bubble to burst! I did wake up [...]

RACE DAY!

By | July 30th, 2015|Motivation, Racing|

The hard work has been done.  All those hills, those cold and dark mornings and those efforts have led to today. I remind myself that I can only control the controllables. There is nothing more to be done except to believe in myself and my abilities. Thanks to all those who have ridden beside me, [...]

Road Race – Elzach World Cup

By | July 26th, 2015|Celebration, Motivation, Racing|

After a rest day on Saturday I had the road race today.  I really wasn't sure if I was looking forward to it or not as it was an extremely technical course with about 17 corners on it.  With 6 laps to do that meant that I was going to be doing 102 corners, not [...]

Today was the ITT and the first international race for the Australian Team at the 3rd Para Cycling World Cup in Elzach, Germany.  We knew that it was going to be a tough race for all the riders as the ITT was a point to point race and uphill!  The Hand cycles and Trikes had [...]

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

By | August 31st, 2014|BLOG, Celebration, Motivation, Racing|

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, [...]
