2018 Race Calendar

I know that 2017 isn’t over yet but races tend to fill up quickly so I’ve been registering for some 2018 races already. I’ll be racing in Scimitar Sports colours next year, so as well as the Quadrathlon Trophy Series races I’ll be joining some other Scimitar Endurance riders in various mountain bike or gravel bike races...

British Sprint Triathlon Championships – Race Report

St Neots, in Cambridgeshire, and the British Sprint Triathlon Championships were in town. Once again we found ourselves getting up early in a Premier Inn Hotel room ready to head off to do a fairly high profile race. Not only was it the British Championships, but it was also a qualifier for the World Championships...

Osprey Sprint Triathlon, Portland – Race Report

The Osprey Sprint Triathlon, Portland – Race two of the year for me and as I’ve been trying to tell everyone, I’m not taking things quite so seriously this year. I’m still training fairly well and in that respect there had been nothing wrong with my preparation. I’m not however doing things to quite the...

Race Number 3

European Triathlon Champs, Kitzbuhel – Race Report

Well, the time had come, time to defend my title as European Triathlon Champion in the Sprint 40-44 year age-group and time to race. To be honest it was unlikely that I would defend it, but I was going to have fun trying and it’s always good to race on the international scene. Preparation My...

Union Jack Toes

Yep, it’s race time again so I have to subject you to my new toes. Union Jack toes again for an international race as I’ll be competing for Team GB.

Hafod 1

Ras yr Hafod

Hot on the heels of Sports Day at school, the next day after school we headed out for the Ras yr Hafod at Hafod Estate. This was an adult 10k race along with several kids races. Morgan wanted to do it, but not alone so roped his friend Cameron into it as well. None of them...

British Sprint Triathlon Championship, Eton Dorney – Race Report

May 17th 2014 already? Time for the Human Race British Sprint Triathlon Championships at Eton Dorney and what should have been an ‘A’-priority race for me. Training had been going quite well over the winter but the last 6 weeks or so hadn’t been quite so good. As I’ve posted elsewhere I just didn’t feel that...

Newtown Triathlon – Race Report

My first race of the season, and I’d picked a fairly local, fairly low key event in the form of the Newtown Triathlon to get things started. With only about 60 places available in the race it was never going to be hugely competitive and would therefore hopefully allow me to get a bit of...

Coed y Brenin Enduro 2013 – Race Report

I’ve called this a ‘race report’ but for me and probably most of people taking part it wasn’t a race, just an event. It isn’t classed as a race by the organisers either and is really just an excuse to ride around the hills and woods of North Wales with 600 like-minded people. I’d taken part...

ITU Age-Group Triathlon World Champs, London – Race Report

The day was upon us, Friday the 13th and it was grey and drizzly. We were in London for the ITU Age-Group World Triathlon Championships and I was racing in the 40-44 year old Sprint Distance race. Training had been going well and I had managed a whole season of good quality, consistent training. I hadn’t raced...
