Etape Caledonia

Wanting to do longer rides in 2019, I signed up in August last year. The plan was to go with Hugh initially, cannot recall why that did not work out but having signed up for Liege too I thought this was a nice follow up. However at the time of […]


Marius Outlaw 1/2

It feels like it was only a few weeks ago that I took the bold decision to push my newly found sport to, what I would consider, my extreme. I only did my first novice triathlon in January 2018 and since then only did one sprint in August 2018. It […]
