It's been a while since I've put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard to write a blog update. It’s been tricky to know what to write as I train relentlessly in pursuit of achieving goals which at the moment seem so distant over water in countries where entry restrictions, covid testing and quarantine are part of the new travel regime. We're back between the tape though and there's plenty of excitement about the season ahead.
Bike racing is back and it's a capacity turn out! After a year of no events there's a resurgence happening, everyone is motivated and raring to go. Down in Australia coaching clients have been racing the past few months and in parts of Europe racing is in full swing. In the UK we had to wait till the 4th of April to unleash our competitive spirit. The Southern XC Series is putting the pieces together and deserve the success seen at rounds one to three which have seen almost 600 participants at each round and a healthy waiting list. We’re seeing unprecedented demand; the excitement is great to see.
