GW Designs is proud to announce that we are sponsoring Rocky Mountain Bicycles UK brand ambassador Elbry Sandland this year. Look for his first freshly painted helmet at the Exmoor enduro in just over a weeks time! Follow on FB
The goal was simple, keep riding to a steady aerobic pace, minimized the time above threshold to give me an endurance base for the year , but at the same time smash 1500 miles in a month in less hours for about the same amount of climbing than enduro ace Mark Weir set at the start of his riding year. This just so happened to coincide with the Strava Month of May challenge, giving me more motivation to clock up the average 50 miles a day needed. With two days away (no bike) with the wife and off the bike one night to sort the final details with new sponsor @Rocky Mountain UK as a brand ambassador i would have to smash it out what ever the weather.. Well the hope was that the weather in May would be dry and sunny, what i got was a lot wet and windy rides after work. Still come the end of the month my goals had been smashed, faster time than Weir, 5+-7 goal. 5 % more power, loss of 7 pounds. But best of all i was not trashed, i did hope to get some speed work in before a big race but with Bike Fest at the start of June it was right in to racing joining buddy Stu for a 12 hours paired race. Month of May.. what a mind blender!
