Racing wise, April has probably been my busiest month ever, I’ve had a double header every weekend apart from the final weekend where the TT on Saturday 27th was sadly cancelled. Sadly though, all with a slightly dodgy knee that has still not fully recovered. I eventually saw a specialist and subsequently had an MRI … More Strangely successful April….
After kicking off the 2019 competitive account at nationals in January I have been forced to delay my full race programme due to a lingering injury. Towards the start of march there was a Wednesday afternoon where the sun was out, temperature was high and I went out for a ride with a load of … More A Stunted Start….
The last month and a bit has been pretty crazy. With christmas festivities, National track champs and a short trip away for some pedalling in Spain. After the success of BUCS track champs, training was all going well, knocking out all kinds of power pb’s in sessions and getting excited of what would be possible … More Nationals and Calpeh
As we approach the termination of 2018 I feel it an appropriate time for a final blog post of the year, with an update on what I’ve been up to in the ‘off season’.

The highs include Pbs over all distances in TTs, some of my best road results to date and enjoying training as much as ever. The lows (or not … More 2018…Season complete
Since the last update I’ve done only two races, one at Hillingdon and then the Victor berlemont, Sandwiching a few weeks away in France, Spain (briefly) and Andorra. Hillingdon was just an evening Crit in the E12 race where I was combative from the off, managing to get in a few small moves but resulted … More Hucks ‘Tour de France’ and racing updates
As we approach the latter half of the season I feel it’s an appropriate time to reflect on the weeks since my previous blog post and shed some light on how I feel this season has gone so far. My last post was after a successful OVB stage race and ever enjoyable Silverstone TTT, since … More Mid Season Update!
The 15th-17th June saw an action packed 3 days of riding with the annual Silverstone TTT followed by a 2 day stage race which included a TTT, two road stages and an ITT. Friday 15th saw my 4th time competing in the Silverstone TTT, an event that the whole of HWCC always look forward to, … More OVB Stage Race & Silverstone TTT
Edge Hill, the stuff of dreams for those cyclists that enjoy unleashing their inner goat. Sam, Seb and I would no doubt all say that we enjoy it when the road goes up, so the circuit just outside of Banbury that takes in 3 ascents of Edge Hill was something we were all looking forward … More Banbury Star RR – race report
After the success of the BUCS RR, one of my best results to date, I have since had emotion on either side of the competitive bike racing spectrum. The week after the BUCS RR I had two trips to the tarmac, the first mid week when a stray pedestrian was incapable of using the crossing … More The highs and lows of Bike riding!
