May maddness

So May is nearing a close and this month has seen me as busy as ever. Starting off with a 10 day spell in Nottingham paddling and raft guiding every day in preparation for an upcoming slalom double event at HPP.

Training was going really well but a boozey night out in Nottingham the night before the race threatened my chances. Luckily I managed to get there in time and layed down a time which left me sitting in the mid-table after saturday. Sadly Sundays course changes didn't suit me and I had a poor result. Luckily sunny weather and good company made up for it all.
The following week was spent on a practical week with uni climbing in the Peaks and learning a few new bits and bobs along the way. That lead straight into an early drive to Bala, Wales on saturday morning where Pyranha were hosting the first of a series of freestyle competitions. The event was held at the top hole on Tryweryn, and although the water was cold the weather was HOT.

The feature was a bit flushy and after three rides I had not done that well. Luckily a cracking party was organised and the next morning saw a brilliant boater-X event. Once the water had been turned off I headed to Capel Curig where I had another week of multi-pitch climbing with Uni.

In conclusion May has been a real belter, hopefully the rest of the summer will be as good.
