We had a busy year in 2017

So just a few lines of what we have done and where we have been 🙂


Both did Port of Tauranga Half Ironman, Mount Maunganui

I did Redbull Defiance, Wanaka

Bobby did the Coast to Coast, I did it in a tandem team with mum.

We did GODZone together in team Bivouac Inov8, in Queenstown.

Bobby did Xterra, Rotorua

Both went to China for an adventure race.

Both went back to China for another two adventure races.

I finished my job as a project manager, we moved house and started our new contract milking job. (This was, and still is the hardest event.)

We spoke at the Fonterra end of season dinner.

I went to northern India and raced with team Skylotec at Expedition India.

I did Spring Challenge womens adventure race with the Sneaky Weasel Girls.

We both did Whaka 100 mountain bike race, Rotorua

We both did Whangamata 12 hour adventure race in team Dingo

Bobby did Southern Lakes 24 hour adventure race with the Sneaky Weasel Gang.

We became the new King and Queen of the Karioi trail run, Raglan.

Bobby got his big Crown at King of the Mount, Mt Maunganui

Whats in store for 2018?


Redbull Defiance, Bobby is racing with Hamish Flemming and I am with Matilda Lawrence.

Coast to Coast, both of us are doing the longest day individual.

Followed by a load more adventures, training, swearing and smiles 🙂


Phew, sometimes we push it a bit too much and we question our sanity,  dream of quiet days with loads of time. But who are we kidding? We can do that when we are old!

Thank you everyone for your encouragement and support.

Our adventures wouldn’t be possible with the help of our families and friends and sponsors. Liv Cycling NZ, Cycle Obsession, Tailwind Nutrition NZ, Bivouac Outdoor, Restore Massage, Rob from Foot Traffic Coaching, Chris from Perimeter Coaching
