As the cold weather sets in, winter is a quiet time. It’s usually the time that we as trial bike riders get our heads down and keep quiet to power through some winter training.
At this time of year, trials competitions may be more relaxed but quality training sessions take on greater importance as we prepare for the tough season ahead.
While the British weather, with its high winds and driving rain, can be morale-sapping, these types of conditions are great for a trials rider. Lots of rain means lots of mud and the tough conditions are great to not only help you build physical strength but they can develop a rider’s mental strength too which could help make the difference during a testing season.
During the next few months, my training will mostly consist of riding sessions where I’ll be focusing on my technique and honing my skills to help me achieve my goals during the season. I’ll also be making sure my fitness levels are up to scratch to allow me to get the most out of myself and the bike once the season begins properly and finally I’ll be making sure that I have the sponsorship deals and backing in place that is invaluable in helping a rider maximise their potential at every event.
I can’t wait to start the season. 2019 will be the biggest year so far for me with the big competitions like the demanding Scottish Six-Day Trial and many more besides.
It really does promise to be a great year and I wouldn’t be able to do any of it without the support of my team and sponsors like Thorneycroft Solicitors who have given me a lot of confidence for the season ahead.
I hope to make this season my best yet!
