My first Triathlon since retirement!

Zena Stoltz 10 months

I know, I havent blogged in a while. There has so much to talk about this past year! Many fantastic stories and memories, retirement from professional racing, baby Zena, my first winter in 23 years(!?) and new beginnings in the coffee shop and my coaching business. But as any new parent will tell, you – once you have a baby in the house – priorities (and time) change beyond imagination!

Being known as “the sporty couple”, we have been warned that our baby is going to be busy! We thought it was cute at the time, but no jokes! Zena is one busy body!

However much fun it is, one needs a break from working all that coffee magic…

Destination Trail – Tasmania. Specialized rider Troy Brosnan makes me want to pack my bags and go ride flowy Tazzie trails. Wow.

 

Caveman rock drops fat tyred Stumpjumper 6Fattie


Now that I’m retired from racing, I love trail riding just for fun. Stellenbosch (South Africa) has plenty of great trails, like the new Red Route in Jonkershoek.

In the edit I drop my Specialized Stumpjumper 6Fattie into the rocks. I ride the 3 inch wide 650B tyres quite soft- 18psi rear 15 psi front (1.2 and 1 Bar) they just soak up the trail rubble and let you rail the trail.

Caveman’s go everywhere, do anything bike!
