Racing is over and the teams for this years international race circuits have been made. I am excited to announce I will be competing on the Inter-Continental Cup this year with races in Whistler, Calgary, St. Moritz and Altenberg. I was 3rd overall in the 4 run selection race in Lillehammer, setting a new downtime PB of 53.77s and a push PB of 5.17s. I also got 121.7 kph out of my new runners! So thanks to all you lovely people that supported me via Pledge Sports and also my sponsors CS Utility Contractors and SWR Waste Management; without you I’d be going nowhere fast!
The selection race was close this year and although disappointed to have missed out on selection for the Pyeongchang international training week I am thrilled to be stepping up onto a new circuit for 2017-18 into Olympic year. Big thanks also to the IOW Talented Athlete Scheme for supporting me and of course the National Lottery and our NGB The BBSA and sponsors for allowing me to live this dream!
Next stop is Whistler, the fastest track in the world!
