I am THRILLED to announce that next season I shall continue to be sponsored by Planet X, and have a new sponsor in Aqua Sphere!!
Planet X have provided me with super fast, lightweight, “snazzy” bikes: a road bike and two (poor smashed to smithereens bike number 1) TT bikes. We have had our ups and our downs, but overall I have LOVED riding them and cannot WAIT to improve even more next year!
Aqua Sphere is a super exciting one!! They showed an interest after I won the swim at Ironman Sweden. After researching their brand some more (I am fussy with goggles and fast racing suits), I found out that, basically, they have STOLEN MICHAEL PHELPS‘ HEART!! He is now using their brand and is kicking butt!!
More on the above products later – I will be giving 100% honest opinions on their goodies – but in more news:
Kylie Babez and I have scored ELITE entries to the Ribble Valley 10km (North of England Champs) this Sunday. My biggest fear is how much Prague has had/Christmas will have an effect on us, but also the weather is meant to be horrendous 😦
BUT we did it last year and LOVED it! It is undulating with a great field, fantastic support, pretty views, and amazing organisation, and I highly recommend it if you want a PB!
I managed a 37.30 and Kyle a 30.46 there and we would both REALLY love to smash those times this weekend…fingers crossed and wish us luck 🙂
Then I’ll be down to some real hard work and heavy training because I of the Girls for Gold Coast Squad! Not only that, they were so impressed by my performance at the Assessment Day, that I was the only one from it to be invited to a warm weather camp with some superstar British triathletes in Feb!!
I hope everyone has an even better year than they had last year! As we saw at “Lennon Wall” in Prague:
(“May the best of your past be the worst of your future”)
