I have had 4 months off racing as Kim has gone back to work full time and I have not had a break from racing for a long time. I needed to reenergize myself. With KONA being a major sponsor of the Gravity 12 Hour I thought this would be a good opportunity to get back into the swimg of things. I have raced Solo for the last 2 year but decided it was time to give pairs racing a go. I teamed up with Phillip Bellingham, we had a ripper start with Phillip leading the run before getting on the bikes. We came 3rd in the pairs. It was hard work but alot of fun riding. I pulled up alright and look forward to racing with some of the young guys from the KONA team at the KONA 24 HOUR in a couple of weeks time.
