There are eight district sports awards held by Sport Waikato around the region each year, the intention of these awards is designed to recognise volunteerism and participation in sport within each community. I had the privilege of becoming the winner for the Taupo 2013 Sportsman of the Year Award.
The event was held in the Great Lake pavilion in Taupo, it was a great night with fellow junior triathlete Kyle Smith cleaning up the youth and premier awards.
Thanks to those who nominated me, I look forward to seeing what happens at the Regional Awards come January 2014!!
Training days have been flying by with the warmer weather, has been nice to leave the gloves and leg warmers at home on my long rides and the trails have dried up a lot which is making my run sessions a lot quicker!
Have recently gotten back into the Tuesday night bike races that are held at the Taupo race course, provided some great entertainment this week showing up on my mums old Cervelo, although the other guys weren't laughing so much by the end of the race ;) – unfortunately Giant weren't able to fulfill their sponsorship bikes to me this year so am on the hunt for a new bike sponsor for the 2014 season!
Summer racing is kicking off with Tinman on 8th December followed quickly by the Taupo half on 14th
December and then off to defend my NZ Long Distance title at the Tauranga Half on 4th Jan 204!!
Cheers for your continued support
