This years racing started in Hampton Downs at the motor racing course which is good to practise on that type of course as Tokyo will be similar! Then followed by the Bev May Classic in Morrinsville, both races went well and the coach was very happy.
Over easter I did an endurance block at my friend John Blakes house in Waitomo Caves. The roads around there are still quiet as it is more of a tourist destination, I love it!
Waikato/ Bay of Plenty Champs were held in Cambridge and Tokoroa in March followed by the National Championship in Rotorua in April. Both events I won gold in Time-Trials and Road races and gained a personal best in 1 hour power output.
All along I have had great support from Michael Flynn at High Performance Sport New Zealand. In March I went to a targeted sports forum in Cambridge, where long list Para Athletes came together and were informed about the Covid-19 measures regarding competing in Tokyo.
HPSNZ had organised for John and I to get the Covid-19 Vaccination so we can fly to Brisbane this coming Monday. There, my classification will be reviewed and I will also be competing in a time trial, hope it all goes well!
