New found Respect for the Elites
by justalJun 28th 2014
Following my race in Kitzbuhel for the European Champs last week I took a ride up the KitzbÃ¼heler Horn, the same hill that the Elites raced up last year.
I had quite an adventure on the way back down with both my tubes exploding in spectacular fashion due to the heat build up from the brake block (Read my full report here)... But, the ride up was amazing and now that I've done it I have some newfound respect for the elites who raced up it last year... It's certainly a proper hill and racing up it must have been mad.
Although I'd love to, I won't have time to blog here too often, but I do keep a regular blog all about my Triathlon (and other) exploits here:
I'm a born again Triathlete, having done a few races in my teens, I stopped doing any sort of training for over 20 years and then started again in 2011 when I was 40. I had fun doing them and didn't do too badly, so I'm once again on the way to being able to call myself a 'Triathlete'.
The blog above contains plenty of training tips, notes on any particularly exciting training sessions or those of note and my race schedules and reports. It also contains lots of other things too, all about living a 'Simple Life of Luxury' here in West Wales where we spend our time swimming, cycling, running, MTBig, windsurfing, surfing, gardening, beekeeping, watching the sky at night and many many other things - I hope you enjoy it.
