2016 ITU WORLD CROSS TRI CHAMPIONSHIPS – Australia

November 2016 – ITU World Cross Tri Championships – Thredbo, Australia.   If you had asked me one year ago how the 2016 season was going to go, I would have been optimistic and excited – but finishing up with two top 10 Professional World Championship results (8th Xterra, 6th ITU), Xterra Asia Pacific Champion, […]

2016 XTERRA WORLD CHAMPIONSHPS – Hawaii

September 2016 – Xterra Pan Am / U.S Championships – Snowbasin, Utah.

2016 Xterra Malaysia Champs – Langkawi

May 2016 – Xterra Malaysia Champs – Langkawi Yes you’ve seen that correctly – a wind chill factor of 44 degrees ! It was my second time racing in Langkawi and loved it.
