It’s been a long time between blogs.
In brief, I last wrote when I had been reclassified at the World Championships in Canada last year. At the time I was not overly excited about the prospect of riding a kneeling hand cycle in the H4 class, but now, having adjusted really well, I would not go back. On this bike I can get more power, greater acceleration, can ride strongly for 3 hours at pace.
Racing this year has included the Nationals and Oceanas on the Sunshine Coast (the rainy coast!), and a UCI World Cup event in Sydney as a member of the Australian team. This particularly was an amazing experience as it was the first time I was racing against a big, experienced and very competent field. The tactics, pace and excitment of the race were awesome and I can’t wait to do it all again!
On Sunday I have the awesome opportunity to travel to Europe on a three week training camp with 6 races to compete in, two in Italy (28th/29th May, Piacenza) , two in Switzerland (3rd/4th June, Oensingen) and two in Spain (10th/11th/12th – UCI World Cup, Segovia) .
