MTB 25km, Trail run 12km, and XC Motorcycling leg of 80km. Hands down the funnest 'multisport event' on the calendar. Theres already lots of talk about who'll front up this time. It's gonna be big, so make sure you're a part of it. This time..... I'll sort out that gas mileage

As Sport Manawatu guy I've spent the last few days organising school visits around the region for our Olympic heroes Kris Gemmell and Jesse Sergent (Track Cycling medallist). Cramming them into as many schools as we can to help inspire our youth. Its been fun, and its been educational.
Poor kids today I think were a bit confused as I ended up spending 1hr solid signing autographs! Ok, so I'm a decent athlete but they didn't know who I was (Actually a few had seen me on TV3 news after XTERRA NZ so I must be famous!).Wait till they realise, or their parents ask who it was who scribbled on their hats. Damn imposter!

Orion Health just won the Adventure Racing World Championship! Awesome. I'd be clutching at straws to claim any part of it.... but its awesome to be able to say I raced as part of the team in China, the year they became World Champs.
Magnificent effort, and I'll look forward to the invite to the ice-cream eating challenge with Orion when it happens

Whilst I sit on my arse at home and do very little.... Team Orion Health (http://www.orionadventure.com) are getting very little rest as they continue to lead the ecomotion in Brazil. Also know as the World Adventure racing championship 2008.
3 days in and NZ'ers dominate the leader board. But its these guys, the team I made a guest appearance for at the Wulong Mtn Quest, who continue to lead the way. Fingers crossed they can hold on.
And I can assure you I they'd be going considerably slower 3 days in if I was there!
