2018 a new year, a new beginning, a new baby girl Harriet for Matilda to be a "big sister" to and..... time to put the University studies and 16+ years of racing professionally and learning from some of the best minds in the sport of triathlon to good use. I am excited to join the Gerard Donnally and the staff at TriVelo coaching and share everything that I have learned and also to keep on learning, adapting and evolving.

Welcome to 2017..



With one week locked away already the year has gotten off to a fun start.

Last weekend was spent down in Lorne Victoria hanging out at the "Pier to Pub" swim event with 5000+ other swimmers. It is always a great weekend away with the family and Lucy was able to notch up #20 (Double Shark Bait) with her father.

This weekend sees us head down to the "2 Bays trail run" which I am very much looking forward to after so many people have mentioned how stunning the course is. Last years event was put on hold with a fractured pelvis from a bike accident.

All these events are fun and in preparation for Challenge Wanaka in New Zealand on February 18th. The full Iron distance event is run in and around the Wanaka region well know for its surroundings.

Always be active.

Ironman 70.3 Ballarat - Race ambassador.

Rounding out the year is always nice at an event and town where things all began for myself. As a teenager and giving triathlon a 'go' Ballarat was one of the first events with fond memories so it is nice to get back there and help bring triathlon and Ballarat to the Ironman World.

This year Ironman and myself are looking at doing a "FaceLive" feed leading into the event so you can see the 'goings on' pre and post event. I guess it will allow you a little insight as to how the professionals go about things.

See below the ling to the Ironman event race site for all details.

Challenge Shepparton Half

Please see a quick link below from Challenge Shepparton from over the weekend where I assisted with "Facebook Live" updates of the race. It was a little bit of fun and very well received by the public.

Along with this I was in and out of commentary throughout the day. As I was unable to defend my title it was nice to still be out there and involved cheering everyone on. Scroll through and you will see all of the updates and comments through the race!
