I think the decision to aim for the Olympic qualifiers was never really made but was always with me since my early days in a boat. I can't explain it, it's just the way it is; to compete at my best at the highest level. So, around September 2008 I made a decision to do something about it; to concentrate all my efforts into slalom training for the next while with the only aim being "to be able to look back and say I did my best"

This blog is the story of my journey

Summer 2010 roadtrip

I will be competing in three World Cup Races, Czech Republic, Spain and Germany. After five weeks is the Pre Worlds in Slovakia, with the Slovak open the following week.

Depending on my results at the World Cups I also hope to qualify for the World Championships in Slovenia.

Having never competed at this level before, it's going to be a steep learning curve, but thats what I'm here for.

Life on the Road

I had been having some trouble for the last few days in France, with limited english from some french mechanics and no french from me, we figured out it was the starter motor.

Half way between Dover and Nottingnam after just filling with diesel, it refused to start.

Luckily I was in the AA and I was back on the road the following
morning after a night in a hotel was arranged by the friendly
AA man.
