Training and Exciting things!
With the Croc trophy fast approaching 18 days, 9 hours and 48 seconds. Shannon from Koiled Imports http://www.koiled.com.au/ my sponsor and close friend has prepared my bike so now it is just up to me to finishing preparing myself for 9 days of racing ahead.
Finalizing this has been made a little easier Coach Cupcake (aka Tim) returning just at the right time from an extended overseas holiday to make some fine adjustments to my training.
Meaning more of this type of riding
and a bit of this
And a little bit of climbing too
The last few months have included lots of riding and climbing in preparation for the challenges, which this race will provide, once I reach the start line on the 20th of October in Cairns and onto the start lines in the unknown...
These last few months of training and fitting in work has been a busy time.
Though during this time I have been fortunate with the assistance of a close friend Gary to facilitate an introduction with Mark and Miriam Pearce from Cleanskin Coffee.
The outcome from this introduction?
Securing an ongoing sponsorship with Cleanskin Coffee to support me in traveling to North Queensland for the Croc and other MTB and Road events into the future.
Securing a sponsorship / partnership with a business such as Cleanskin Coffee is very complementary to Koiled Imports and what we enjoy doing… Cycling and enjoying good coffee!
Shortly Cleanskin Coffee will be releasing a custom blend, branded to support me and Koiled Imports into the future, so keep an eye on their site for more information…
