Once confirmation was made that I was in ok condition and my niggles were fixable, training carried on as per normal. Unfortunately for my New Zealand team mate Kurt Picard his crash as the world champs was worse than first predicted and he is to get under the knife next week (all the best with the recovery buddy). As a result I am travelling in his place now to Argentina and like originally planned, into Chula Vista for the final round of the world cup series. We all fly out tonight to USA where we will have a 3 day layover in Miami and then down to Argentina to get in for the race. We then head out to the newly built World class facility in USA of Rockhill, South Carolina to train for 2 weeks in the build up to the Chula Vista, California.
My build up for this race hasn’t been as good as I usually would have liked to due to injuries and time off the bike to relax, but it’s going to be a good test moving forward to see how I can handle this type of build up physically and mentally to an even bigger race such as world champs or the Olympics in a few years.
I'm also pumped to get on board a new Royalty whip equipped with BOX Components goodness keeping my ride stiff and fast. what do you guys think?
All for now, will try and keep this updated over the next 4 weeks of travelling as it comes in. Time to get on a bird.
