Looking back on last year and how training and racing went, there weren’t many races. The one race was Outlaw X and I had plans to enter till all the other races had been cancelled.
I started off my 2020 season well by qualifying for all three national cross countries. I was then building for what I hoped would be my best season yet but unfortunately due to the pandemic all the British Super Series races were cancelled.
My 2020 really was a non-starter. I managed to fit in two races before we went into a series of lockdowns and tough restrictions; a duathlon and an aquathlon.
The 2020 race season was a season like no other. In Australia we began 2020 with horrible bushfires affecting the entire state of NSW where I live and cancelling a national event that was scheduled to occur in the middle of January and then immediately after the worst of the fires had eased, COVID-19 began to spread and we were forced into lockdown.
