Testing bike number 4: WIAWIS*ยฐ ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ
*WIAWIS means Winning Action, Winning Spirit ๐Ÿ‘Š
ยฐPronounced: We-ahh-wiss ๐Ÿค“

Racing into the week like ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’จ Testing the fourth and final frame before heading to Europe for the World Cups! So cool to have the opportunity to be trying/testing different frames. ๐Ÿ™Œโค๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ

Massive delay on the post but - so stoked to win the Oceania Continental Champs a couple of weeks ago! (Side note: It's been so incredible to see my friends on the podium of the BMX World Cups and the Commonwealth Games recently!!!) Oceania Champs was a great way to finish my testing on the carbon @harorace! Riding carbon for the first time has been awesome! I am converted.
Next step: which carbon?

960 frames per second ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Magic!!! ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿ˜ Check out Eclipse (the dolphin) giving a send off from an awesome trip to Aussie!

Close up encounter with a wild dolphin this morning @dolphindiscoverycentre! Apparently they're there almost every morning from 8am (so if you're staying in Bunbury for Aussie nationals - be sure to check it out) ๐Ÿ˜ Waterproof @samsungnz definitely coming in handy!

Not your usual race prep! ๐Ÿ˜…

Awesome morning with @leannacurtis172 @maynardpeel & @brandontehiko247 before the #OceaniaBMX Championships tomorrow!
Amazing opportunity to visit the Bunbury Wildlife Park and the Dolphin Discovery Centre to hang out with a kangaroo, emu, turtle & python!

Being proud would be one of the best feelings in the World!

Pride is an opportunity to reflect on any moment in a positive way and it is an incredible way to grow self-worth and self-respect. I am proud of giving my best to what I do, regardless of result.

The new @beeflambnz campaign is different to anything we've done before!
Check it out, share something that makes you proud and feel your day get that much better!

This guy is an absolute legend and here is why:

I was at a dinner at the end of last year when we got chatting. He offered for me to come into his dental practice to get my teeth checked out and if there was anything he could help with..
๐Ÿค”
Well, I let him know that there is this talented young BMXer that I support, and that it would be amazing if we could work together to get her braces! I had them when I was younger which changed the way I smile & allowed me to feel free to smile as much as I can! ๐Ÿ˜
To be able to use my profile to support @jessie_smithbmx means a lot to me, and for @drscottwaghorn to allow me to share it means the World! ๐ŸŒ
Self-confidence is a priceless gift!

There's a flame.... and then there's an Olympic Flame! I think you can tell which flame I got to hold by the the look in my eyes and the smile on my face ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ Incredible experience to be the caretaker of the Olympic Flame during the Torch Relay (for 200 meters) ๐Ÿ™ˆ

#funfact: Commemorating theย theft of fireย from the Greek godย Zeusย byย Prometheus & the torch is lit by the light of the sun using its rays concentrated by aย parabolic mirror.

Sooooo excited to carry the Olympic Flame as part of the #OlympicTorchRelay!! The Olympic Torch Relay has been part of the Olympic Games since 1936 & has travelled from Olympia, Greece & around Korea in a 101 day relay!

Tomorrow is the opening of the Winter Olympics here in Korea, and today I'm fulfilling a dream to run in the relay with the Olympic Flame!

There's a live feed on YouTube - I'm runner 99 at 5:09pm local time / 9:09pm NZ time (but could be 10 minutes early)! #linkinbio #olympics #pyeongchang2018

Awesome to see so many girls racing on the weekend! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž Special shout out & good luck to @zoefleming who's heading to USA for her second year as a pro rider! Love seeing kiwis taking on the World & chasing their dreams! #follow
