The last race of the 2013 season took place in the South Island of New Zealand where the slightly cooler conditions ensured all of our winter kit made the journey. The first four days was spent in the picturesque location of Queenstown where the whole team had the chance to explore the surroundings and bond before the seven day Tour of Southland began some days later. The training rides were amazing and we were lucky enough to have some great weather whilst in Queenstown. We may have used up all of the Wifi data in Queenstown, but the coffee was great and the Indian and Thai restaurants were even better!

With the weather on our side for this year’s 98th Edition of the 256km Melbourne to Warrnambool, the 6.5hrs spent in the saddle were a little more enjoyable then previous years. Racing with Huon – Genesys Pro Cycling Team, my aspirations were high leading into the race as I was confident the team we had was capable of achieving success.

Footscray Cycling Club's Midlands Tour was in its 72th year for the 2013 edition with this year’s 120km course making for a great race. One of Victoria's true Road Classics, the bikebug.com Midlands Tour is held in honour of the late 'Tas' Johnson, who reached the pinnacle of Australian cycling by representing Australia at both the 1934 Empire Games and the 1936 Olympic Games.

The Tour of the Great South Coast offers something for everyone from criterium races to challenging road stages for the climbers. This year, the Huon – Genesys line-up was strong and we were aiming to win stages and be competitive for overall GC. The third day of racing saw another Kermese circuit around the waterfront roads of Port Fairy which tested riders as they battled the windy conditions. The whole team rode in a good position throughout the race and in the final few laps, Pat and I tried to keep AJ safe near the front for the finish. We kept him out of trouble as best we could and he snuck up the inside on the last corner to take his third stage victory.

After a late call up to join my Huon Salmon – Genesys Wealth Pro Cycling Teammates in the NRS Tour of Gippsland, I was looking forward to a successful week supporting the boys and sharing my local knowledge, racing on roads which I’m very familiar with.
