Some fresh kit arrived recently based around the Team JMC colours. Massive thanks to new sponsors Funn and Budge at Team JMC for putting this together.
A chance to welcome the new sponsors Funn, Granite Design and Taylored Cycles on to the jersey alongside long term sponsors USE, Exposure Lights, ESI grips and E3coach. Sadly both M Steel cycles and Roll for the Soul closed down in 2017 who both have supported me brilliantly in the last few years. Particularly Joe and all the guys at M Steels who helped supported my very early days of racing.
The kit is ready in time for the next few weeks of panic race cramming as I haven’t done that much so far this year. I have managed to get out riding a fair bit though including a slightly rained off biking stag do to Finale Ligure and some bit road bit missions including Suffolk-Bristol for the hell of it.
The next few weeks involve taking in Gorrick 100, Heaven of the South and Wantage MTB marathon in prep for the trip across to the Isle of Man for the UK 24 Hour champs which is the main early season goal. Looking forward to catching up with the island locals and 24 hour racing buddies alike, oh and the mega curry afterwards of course! It will be interesting to see where I’m at on the back of a pretty hectic winter where I’ve managed to get in a surprising amount of riding mostly due to little Rory being a bloody legend (please god let that continue).
The goal as ever this year is to leave nothing out there at all the races I do and see where that takes me.
