A very cold cycle race near Liverpool, England. 5th place this time from a field of 72!
Victory after 60miles near Lancaster, England
It’s been a little while since my last blog so thought I would get you all up to speed.
I have unfortunately not been able to secure a return to the racing scene since my IndyLights Long Beach debut. A lot of hard work has been put in since then and a number of near misses have been encountered and my return has almost been sealed a number of times but ultimately none of the opportunities have come.
I am certainly not giving up on this dream of mine however- anybody that knows me will know that I see everything through that I start upon and my racing career will be no exception. I have some great guys punching for me so hopefully watch this space.
In between the sponsor and deal hunting I have been keeping myself very busy with race instruction work. I have been working extensively at Oulton Park and I am also available for 1 to 1 instruction, so if you are interested, please get in touch!!
The other big thing in my life at the moment is cycling. I began to get into it as part of my training, but lately it has become a bit more serious. I started to enter a few events around the end of last year which led to me teaming up with an amateur cycling team, 4star racing, for this season. The cycle races have been keeping me going mentally, given me something to focus on and provided an outlet for the competitive chimp inside me.
I was made up to secure my first victory in a hilly 60mile race near Lancaster in early April and I have since progressed to a 2nd category ride, which I am very pleased about. This has also led to me gaining selection to the 4star team for a 2 day stage race over May 4/5th which will see me compete against some top UK cyclists amongst them some professionals! Yikes!
So thats me for now- whatever is on the horizon it looks exciting.
