Nick said one day “how about competing in the Pioneer in November in New Zealand ?” Well I am a girl that loves a challenge and with horse eventing a non entity in Singapore I needed something to quench my competitive spirit.

So how easy can a 450Km stage mountain biking race with vertical climb of 15km be ? Well is that a great enough challenge for me ?  I was just about to enter my 50th year and a bike is a bike right ! Can’t be that hard. So in answer to Nick’s question I said “sure why not” . . .
