2015 – A Year In Music

In March 2014 I moved in a new flat , and ALL my records got mixed up in the process. What seemed like a disaster at the time actually turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as once I decided to listen each and every one of them I got quickly addicted to rediscover…

IM Malaysia 2015

The (very last minute) idea behind ironman Malaysia was to make one last use of my 2015 pro license, and depending on the result to decide afterwards whether to pursue the Kona dream and KPR race in 2016. Or not. Obviously having never been to Malaysia the prospect of 10 days in the tropics in…

Blown Quads and D.O.M.S.
