Hi all

Today is day 3 of the racing in Jersey and I am sitting in Bigmaggys writing this. I have spent the last 3 days building my new bikes and doing some races.

Day 1 was a tough day with all the travelling and the early start. We were up at 4:30am and it was off to Gatwick to catch the plane to Jersey. Once there we were straight down to Bigmaggys to finish building my road bike ready for a local club race. I started the race with the fast riders and after 2 laps I had to pull out as I was getting dizzy. Then I realised why I had not eaten since 11.00am and it was now 19:00. So just got out of there and went to eat and off to bed.

Day 2 I had a nice 90 min spin in the morning down to Bigmaggys and then it was build up the TT bike ready for Day 3 and doing an interview ready for the BBC. We spent most of the day in Bigmaggys before I road with Filip down to the hill climb which started at 18:30. Nothing special here I did about 5min25 sec for the 1 mile climb. We were then taken out for a nice Italian meal which went on a bit late.

Day 3 we had a nice early start at 5:30 to get to the 15k TT. It was a straight out and back course the only problem with it was it was wet and windy. So on the way out it was 34mph and on the way back it was only 22mph I was happy with it, I manage a 17min30sec ish on the new TT bike.

Tomorrow is the town crit which I only hope it is dry.
