Blog : Murray Buchan - Three Weeks in Europe27th March 2015
Early March I was lucky enough to be invited on a small filming project with Animal to Laax with Dom Harrington and Johno Verity. Throughout the winter I had seen photos of Laax and their park. It is safe to say it is the best park in Europe this season. By a long way. 4 perfect jumps and the biggest halfpipe in the world! We were very lucky with the weather as we were only in the resort for 4 days and we got 4 days of glorious sunshine. It made it really productive but it was almost to hot to ski at times. The halfpipe has a small drag lift right beside it meaning the lap time is so short. 3.30minutes exactly. I was absolutely knackered by lunchtime. It was an intense few days but the edit should be really fun and great riding at the same time. I am looking forward to seeing...
The Great Britain Para-cycling Team struck gold four times on the opening day of the 2015 UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships in Apeldoorn on Thursday. Medals came thick and fast in the afternoon session at the Omnisport Arena with Dame Sarah Storey, Jody Cundy and both British tandem pairings both taking world titles in a day of 500-metre and kilometre time trials. Sarah Storey opened Britain’s account with a surprise victory in the C5 500-metre time trial, stopping the clock on 37.947, three hundredths ahead of fellow Briton Crystal Lane who took silver. "I just can't stop laughing,” said Storey, who had been focussing on the distance events later in the competition. “Such a short race and obviously my speciality and the thing that I'm good...
Phil Graves : Blog - New Plymouth World Cup 23rd March 2015
Professional triathlete, Phil Graves dops in with his latest blog from his time in New Zealand. The first race of the season is always an unpredictable one and nothing is more unpredictable than going to the other side of the world to start off your season. I set off from the UK destined for Queenstown on the 4th of March, arrived there on the 6th and was met by Jonny Brownlee and Richard Varga who had raced Abu Dhabi WCS on their way to New Zealand a few days later. After a nice night’s sleep I went out for an easy run with the bike coach, which ended up being 2 hours somehow! Not the best way to begin the camp, but a good start of some bike and run training. I think I must have left my swimming arms back in the UK but other than that I did some great training in Queenstown an...
