Tour of Southland

Its been a while since my last post and its been a busy period of training assessments and upcoming exams. I have my biggest race of the year the Tour of Southland next week. The race is 900km long over 7 days starting on the 30th of October. I am racing for Oliphert Contracting team with 5 others. Basically the race is a tour around the Southland district with stages to Gore, Bluff, Te Anau, Winton and Queestown. I have been training very hard over the last 10 weeks once I got over my previous crash injuries. A recent good result was my third place overall in the Taieri Tour,  I was pleased with this considering my limited race fitness.

Once the tour is finished I will be focusing on the Oceania Track Championships. Most likely focusing in on the Omnium and the Scratch race events.

As for next year I have several options I am exploring including some overseas racing and continuing my study.
