Heroes Of The Sport

OK, a bit of shameless self publicity, but isn't that what a blog is in many ways anyway?

A big thank you to Rob Lee of the KMP and founder of the Seven Deadly Spins, for a very flattering mention as a hero in the sport of endurance cycling in the UK in a recent blog post. Keep it up Rob!

UK & European 24hr Solo Championships

Coming so early in my race season, in fact, this was my first race of 2011, this was always going to be a tough ask to pull out my best performance. In the end, I left pleased with a solid weekend's riding, overcoming early mishaps, a momentary crisis of confidence and some terrible weather overnight and secured a steady 6th place, to set me up for what I hope will be a very consistent year of racing.

2011 Race Equipment - Exposure Lights

Custom logos courtesy of the great team At Exposure Lights
As soon I arrived at Newcastleton for the 24hrs of Exposure, I caught sight of the great guys from Exposure Lights. They wandered over to say "hi" and brought with them one of the most important pieces of equipment in an endurance racer's arsenal - lights. These were not just any lights but their new Six Pack and the latest Diablo Mk.2, custom laser etched with my two title sponsors logs: Factory!
