End of Season Report


Me with my bikes and sponsor banner

Well the race season has came to an end and winter is close upon us.

I finished the last two races of the year and now I am full force into training for next year. You can read my latest blog post about the Sausage Suit Individual Time Trial here:

A week after the SSITT I did an 80km gravel race put on by Substance Projects called the Howeling Coyote. It was around the freezing mark on race day so it was a cold one. Even though it was the shortest gravel race this year it was the hardest in my book. There was endless climbing, and my legs could definitely feel it near the end. After a tough day of pace lining, chasing and riding solo I placed 22nd out of a field of 77 competitors in my division. Overall it was a tough challenge and a great way to end the race season.

The 2018 race year has had some tough points but overall it has been a good learning year. I tried gravel racing which I liked and also did some rides that I have always wanted to. During the racing season I worked a lot and it took its toll on my racing. I did the best I could and as my racing career progress I can't wait to see what new races I will be attending and how my performance increases.

I have to send out a huge thank you to my sponsors who stood behind me this year and supported me. I wouldn't be were I am today in my career without them.
