Sunset at my little Maui campsite. Maloha Hawaii, it's been a cool week.

21st overall and the third fastest British athlete ever in Kona. Perhaps if I'd made a few different decisions I could have found a place or two more, but I'm happy. It's been a long season and I'm enjoying a beach in Maui for a few days. Thanks as always to all my supportes it's you that have got me racing at this level.

Possibly not the best kept secret ever, but I've been working with Newcastle Under Lyme company @reapbikes for almost two years now. Their background is in carbon fibre and they have a long history in the automotive. We have been working on producing the fastest possible triathlon bike. With lots of input from the fluid dynamics guys followed by wind tunnel testing and hours on the track with Dan Raptor Bigham and the finest minds in carbon fibre we have done it. I'm super proud to be riding the fastest and most comfortable bike I have ever had the pleasure of swinging my leg over in Kona this year. I'm also super proud that it is British designed, made and built.
Thanks @koruptvision for the shots.

@triathlonguard have me on the stand at the cycle show tomorrow. They were very insistant I didn't miss my ride though, train booked, might need an effort to get back. Awesome sponsor!

Boy of about 5 has been staring at me in the airport, he asked his dad something in German and was told off. Back to the staring, asks his Dad again, told off and a little sob. Back to staring and giving his Dad puppy dog eyes. Dad comes over and apologises, do you think my son could touch your hair?

Friday evening on the balcony waiting for dinner to arrive.

Well that wasn't what I was looking for. Silly little crash, rode back to the front group, but must have stripped the locking nut on my cranks. Interesting fix from the mechanics. I kept running as I thought I could get points, but 16th didn't help. Back to the drawing board.

My record so far this season is two dnfs from two continental Ironman champs. My rear mec broke in South Africa and my wheel jammed in Texas (although I don't think I was going well enough for the result I needed  that day).Third time lucky in Brazil on Sunday. A top 10 finish should qualify me for the World Champs. I've arrived with bike and legs in one piece. Wish me luck, If I screw up another one then I might not come back.

ironman South Africa didn't go according to plan, my rear mec let me down and I had a long wait by the side of the road. Texas was the back up plan, so here I am,doing my last set of strides and looking forward to getting the season off to a proper start on Saturday. @triathlonguard @huubdesign @skechers_UK @OdesmaUK #ironman #ironmantexas #ironmantexas2016

Must look where I am going.
