There’s no surprise that I like CX racing. The combination of technical ability, outright rage power and throwing caution to the wind makes for an exciting and challenging ride, which is completely independent of skill level.
Ever since I was a kid and found out about this mythical mountain, Mt Everest, I knew I wanted to see it for myself. Years of watching documentaries and learning more about the mountain only increased my desire to one day visit it myself.
After reading a CyclingTips article where a few riders tried an Everesting on Everest, with SerkCycling, I knew I’d found a way to visit Everest.
The DK200 is a formidable beast and one which could not be completed without support. I was lucky enough to ride the DK with Rob who had his wonderful wife running support which meant I had the luxury of knowing at least 2 people at each checkpoint!
Have a look at the kit, gear and nutrition I used to get through the ride.
As the seasons ebb and flow so does life, workload, family, commitments and fitness. Time for training can only be prioritised after life’s necessitates have been taken care of.

My Wahoo ELEMNT BOLT review. After using Garmin for the better part of 3 and a half years my initial experience with the Wahoo ELEMNT BOLT have been surprisingly amazing.
Setting out for a long ride is different to setting out for a normal weekend loop. This route is a 250 kilometre loop through Johor, Malaysia, starting from Woodlands and ending in Pengerang.
The 3rd edition of the CycoSports Tour de Phuket was run over the weekend of May 09 – 11.
The race consisted of roughly 243 kilometres of racing over 3 stages. With less than 1,000 m of vertical gain on both stages 2 and 3; the race was one for the Puncheurs.
The Kulai loop is a 90 kilometre loop through Malaysia, with very few traffic lights or interruptions. The road surface is generally good and the traffic usually minimal. Being country roads you do get cars and trucks passing each other, but most drivers in Malaysia are very respectful of cyclists.
