Last weekend I raced Xterra Philippines, this was the 5th
year in a row I’ve competed this race and about the 11th
time Ben and I have competed in the Philippines, obviously you can see how much we love this place. We have a fantastic relationship with Sunrise Events and when we got the invite to go over and race again its was a no brainer. The way every single athlete gets treated is remarkable its all about the experience and Sunrise Events hit the mark every time.
First out of the water – Xterra Wetsuits
To be race fit on the 7th
February is questionable after all I want to peak in April and November so to be in top form in early Feb is just not going to happen, so I have to suck it up and do what I can do off very limited training. Anyways no excuses I had a ball, raced my little heart and finished a solid second to a very classy Kiwi Lizzie Orchid.
Nothing like a face plant to get the game face on #yougottalaugh
It was a short trip the aim was to go there race my best, support the race and get home ASAP with as little distraction to my training as possible. I’m actually love training ATM and super excited to get stuck and see what April, May and June will hold for my race performances.
Finishing strong and excited for whats to come…watch this space
As far a destination race goes Sunrise Events are up there with the best of them for a million reasons, every single person on that start line is cared for and looked after by the events team. Princess and her team lead the way and we cant thank them enough for their generosity & hospitality over the last 5 years. B&J racing will continue to go back year on year and we hope to take some of our athletes in 2017.
Feeling super happy right and now loving life. Very excited to be racing the Aussie cross champs on the 27th
February at Lake Crakenback. Theres still time to enter visit http://in2adventure.com.au/
With thanks to all the people that get us to that start line we couldn’t do this without every single one of you guys.
