MInd Boot Camp.

For anyone needing a little bit of an extra kick to get motivated or focus on the goals ahead I'm doing a little moonlighting alongside Discover2Empower.
Details of the Mind Boot Camp can be found on www.innerchimp.co.uk but simply designed to give your mind a workout in areas that might need some positivity, structure and some personal well being. The first sessions will be at Sennen Village Hall starting Monday 11th May so please drop me a line if you interested.

Alongside this I'm also offering one to one Emotional Coaching using Spectrum Therapy, NLP and Relaxation.  This is a great way to clear out any deeper rooted areas that might have become real challenges in your life. Again go to the www.innerchimp.co.uk for more information.

If you really keen this emotional coaching can be done alongside Surfing or sport and combined with goal setting for both physical and mental goals.

Please drop me a line and let me help you move forward and refocus.

B Final Action


Unlucky not to make the A Final at last weekends regional at Exeter trying all I could to make the top four in the semi final to take me through but just didn't have enough in the tank to get past on the last straight. Anyway I was so stoked to have won the B Final it really menat that my fitness has improved so much and has proved to me that a combination of great coaching, commitment and hard work really does start paying off.
I'm leading the 45+ Cruiser rankings and did pretty well to beat a few of the younger guys this weekend too. Looking forward to this weekends racing on our home track.

BMX for Life

Lately my life has consisted of surfing some amazing waves at Sennen on a whole range of amazing boards shaped by Jools at Gulfstream and this has been such good fun and would not change it for the world. However, deep down every day I've been looking forward to round 2 of the South West Regional BMX Series at Exeter. Well, we've just got back and our weekend ended with massive smiles.
After travelling up on the Saturday we had a great open practice with friends at a great track in Marsh Barton Exeter and welcomed the hotel Saturday night that was given to us by a friend who had to sadly cancel. I owe you one Jon Clifton...thank you but gutted you missed a great weekend.

I wish I could explain this in more detail because the whole atmosphere of being at the races is such a great experience, the racing is so intense and the crashes heavy, it amazing fun. When the racing started Jago rode his heart out amongst an amazing group of 7 year olds who are the future of BMX Racing, these youngsters know how to ride and ride fast. Many have a few years experience on Jago but he made me so proud finishing 3rd in his B Final pushing him up the rankings a little and possibly into the top 10 in the South West, we'll have to wait for the points to be added to British Cycling. So proud as he never once gave, up. Even after slipping a peddle at the gate he didn't drop his head he fought back and took two places fighting all the way to the line. His B Final was the same he rode the last straight with so much determination that he go the third place and his smile said it all. Super Stoked.

 As for his Ol' man, well I did OK too! After putting all us cruiser riders (24" Wheels) into one open group meant as a 45 year old I was racing against 17+ year olds (17-29, 30-40,40-44) and upwards!! I did OK, actually if I was to 'own it' ,I did really well and could not be happer. I got 3 x thirds in my motos (qualifiers) fighting all the way and went to the semi-final, which was stacked as they say, feeling really god. I did all I could and battled to the line trying desperately to make the A Final but could not pass one lad, so got 5th and went to the B Final. So stoked anyway I went into the B Final as highest points scorer and had pick of my gate, I chose gate three and led form the gate to the line and realised then that I won by beating the younger riders and also still retained and extended my points lead for the regional 45+ Cruiser Class.

Our Club as a whole did  amazing well with so many riders taking top places and making A Finals, Micah, Colby, Sienna, Logan, DCL, Scotty, Yasmin, Abi, Andy, Kalin, Jacob, Caden and so many others getting great placings its a testament to a great club with committed coaches and volunteer staff that make racing so much fun and when you see the organisation and support that goes into a regional race like Exeter its staggering and its all voluntary.

With seven more rounds to go I'm so hooked on racing again and Jago can't wait for next weekend as Round 3 is at our Home track at Cornwall BMX Racing Club so if anyone local is reading this and wants to watch some great racing then come on on down.

Go Shanaze

Last December our BMX club had the pleasure of welcoming Shanaze Reade to our track for some expert coaching. Such an inspirational person she is now back on the GB Sprint team and ready for the challenge of Rio 2016. Another reason to watch the cycling now and see her progress towards a Gold.
Shanaze made two Olympic finals on her BMX which is an amazing feat in itself as the standard is so amazingly high. Unfortunately crashing in 2008, and just, well fairly beaten in an amazing London final in 2012, as a 3 x World BMX Champion and two times World Sprint champion she is bloody fast and nows how to ride a bike!!!
Olympic Golds sometimes elude the best but lets support Shanze and this time round 2016 is her year.
