25th May 2010

Sponsorship Reynolds Wheels
I have recently been in contact with the UK Rep for Reynolds Wheels and they have agreed to offer me sponsorship for the season.  I will riding two different wheels which I can vary on the rear.
Well I have started to be very busy with races under way now for 2010.

999 Emergency Service Sprint Tri Champs
Very cold water conditions caused the swim to be reduced from 750m to 500m swim thankfully, however the sun was shining.  Swim went ok I guess could have been better came out the water in in 32nd position 7:45min   40seconds down on the leaders.  With a head wind on the back straight for the bike and tail going out  I soon got into rythym and a very pleasing ride for the 20km in 29:32min (avg 25.24mph)  and heading out onto the run in 7th place.  Chasing down and running very well managed to bring in 3 others to finish a 19min  5km run and in 4th place overall.      

Coventry 1/2 Marathon
Wow what a scorcher  27C and also a fast day for me.  Really pleased with my performance and was able to run 1:23:33hr   6:22min/mile.  My quads were starting to tighten up in the last 2 miles,  being chased down I pressed on and was able to hold a 6:25 and 6:49 min mile for mile 12 & 13.  Finishing 14th out of 2200 entrances and 1900 finishes for the day.
