“Ugh” I said, chewing in the near-darkness of the early morning. Karen had the right idea, she was on the crumpet program; easy to get down, minimal chewing. I stoically continued chewing muesli, thinking ‘well I am going to have to be pretty determined to finish this...

We are super lucky in Australia to have a booming ‘womens only’ race scene. Taking out some of the potential for more aggressive, faster male riders racing on top of you in the pursuit of sheep-station glory has meant that hundreds more women are lining up to have a go...

I am lucky enough to be able to coach an awesome group of cyclists. It's a motley crew, with women and men ranging between junior to masters, I have a little bit of everything.

The Hellfire Cup has been raced four times, and each time misfortune meant I couldn’t attend. The first year Elv was a tiny baby and Aiden and I planned to travel in a campervan, with my mum, to the race in Tassie. Alas, the race was ravaged by fires and was postponed....

You have been selected to represent Australia at XCO World Champs!

Surprise!

I was glad to have been upping the intensity in training in preparation for the Epic, as it means I am not coming into the race underdone. That being said, the preparation hadn’t been 100% optim...

Well I am back in Australia, home from a journey of epic proportions through the amazing BC, Canada. My trip was a two-week whirlwind and I made many amazing memories: all good boxes to tick on a journey to the other side of the world!

But how did my non-training traini...

That’s a wrap! Training: done. Aside from a short ride tomorrow, I’ve now completed my BCBR “non-training” training plan.

Surprisingly enough, I haven’t felt the need to use a Garmin or HRM at all. I expected myself to get a few weeks in and be ready to go, to compare m...
