1st lady at Welsh 2 day enduro

During the last month training has been going v well with lots of long enduro races, trail riding and working at the BMW school.  At the end of June i did the Welsh 2 day, first day was sunny and dry, second day dry in the morning and poured it down in the afternoon which made it v interesting for the experts and championship riders on the grassy special test.   I managed to get 1st lady and came away with a lovely cut glass vase which i am waiting to be given some flowers to put in.  Straight after me and boyfriend Chris headed down South to to the SCEC Hare and Hounds race at Shillingford Forest.  I had a good battle with Clare Taylor and just managed to finish in the lead.  Powys enduro was the next Sunday which was wet, boggy and muddy but a great full day Welsh enduro.

Trail rode up near Barbury Castle in Swindon last Weds eve with a mate Pete and then drove up to teach at the BMW off road skills school for 5 days.  feelin it now though and having a day at home sorting out computer and paperwork which sooner or later we all have to do aye!!!
Entry list should be out on the DAKAR website soon, feeling pretty relaxed about it all at the mo but as soon as i see my name down im sure it’ll be a different story.  Im cycling from John O Groats to Lands End at the end of Oct with a friend Kate in fitness preparation.  She’s been out doing 50 mile loops so i better get my arse in gear.
