I stopped racing in May 2012 and did very little riding until November. I’m on the bike almost every morning now, clicking 400-500km a week. I’m very keen to race, as keen as I was in 2010 after I came back from a hip fracture.
I’m looking for a bunch of guys to enjoy time on the bikes with, racing and training. Although I’m an ambitious type of a rider, always hunting for a win, I have nothing to prove to anybody and am willing to work for whoever happens to have good legs on the day or a better chance of winning. It’s all about having fun and good time though. Cycling is the best sport for it.
2013 Racing Goals
Battle on the Border — I rode this race twice and won it both times. I would like to come back and do it again. I like this race and it’s on my high priority list in 2013.
Anzac 25 — I like this circuit and I was successful there twice on the row (in different categories). I will aim to bag this one again.
Cunningham Classic — This one ain’t called Classic for nothing. It’s a traditional point to point road race, the only one in Queensland. I rode it only once and mucked it up. I know the course now and I want to go back and win it.
Queensland Road Championship — first time I did this race I got popped early and quit. Second time I got popped by my breakaway partner but managed to bring it home in 2nd place. And then finally in 2011 in Warwick everyone but one guy popped and I won. I want to do it again, especially if it will be as cold as in 2011.
National Road Championship — I thought I had this one in the bag in 2011 but two other guys had different plans and I finished 3rd. I want to go back and nail it.
