Plans for the 2014 summer:
The summer is approaching rapidly and so the bike rides in shorts and a jersey shall commence soon. My plans for racing in the summer are quite mixed but maybe slightly different to previous years in terms of quantity. My original plan was to just race on the road to give me that much needed strength that I was lacking in the cross season. Now I have decided to mix it up. A bit of mountain biking here and there but still my main focus is on building strength for the cross season.
World Cup round 1, Valkenburg.
After winning the first National trophy last weekend in a wet Wales I got selected along with three other juniors. We travelled to Valkenburg on Friday afternoon stopping at Calais Friday night.
We arrived in Valkenburg around 12 Saturday for course practice at 2pm. The course was a little slippery but one thing everyone noticed was how hard it was with the small but drags but I found the course quite enjoyable.
