Racing objective 2010

There is one big objective in 2010 – a good finish at the World 24 Hour Championships in Canberra in October. Having qualified in late 2009 at the Kona (second to Jason English), the decision was made to avoid another 24 hour in 2010 and instead put all energies into the October race at Stromlo. The specific goal will be reassessed closer to the time, but will be riding Elite category (though will be 40 for the race and could have been reasonably competitive in age group)…

The other race goal is the Victorian Enduro Series – comprising 7 rounds of 6-hour races. The events are front-loaded at start of the year though the final round will be a couple of weeks after the worlds which will be difficult to get up for … The series provides a good opportunity for hard, consistent racing and to hone the pace/skills. Oh – and it keeps the body and mind reminded of the concept of suffering…
