Got to set goals, not to mention having fun

Abel Tasman Cycle Challenge was a favourite albeit now no more. Coast to Coast and Blue Dog 6hr MTB

They set goals and I was able to see what I could achieve.

Other Team CP athletes, but most importantly my son Alex.

Any other comments?
The race is the result of all the work you put in before, but the best part is realising what you have just achieved, the fun you had getting there and the awesome people you meet along the way. Racing and Training, if done right is like a drug that gives you a few lows, but the highs are the best part. It will always leave you wanting more.
