My Brothers arch to arc attempt.

Friday, April 27th, 2012


I think he needs to do a bit more training. But he always seems to finish these events he enters with very little training. He works very long hours so makes the most of his weekends and does what he can before and after work.

He is raising money for the sports aid foundation. My brother, myself and Bella have been beneficiaries as younger athletes of this charity and it was very welcome to all of us and we would like to think other young athletes can get a bit of help with the costs of doing there sport when they possibly don’t have many funds. Here is the link if you want to give a small or large amount of money:) http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/MarkBayliss

Mummy, Daddy and Charlie after the race in Fuertaventura.

Yes Duna golf(the resort where teamTBB have spent so time this winter) is nearly empty and is perparing to close for a few weeks to do some re painting.

The bike camps and triathlon camps seem to have all but finished. We see very few big groups of cyclists and triathletes out on the roads. In March is was really busy, so many groups out training.

We will be here for a few more weeks till we head to Lanzarote for the Ironman.

Charlie has been crawling all over the place so we have to watch him as his favourite places to go are always the places we don’t want him to go. Like the bathroom and towards plug sockets!

Challenge Fuertaventura

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

It was the 2nd running of Challlenge Fuertaventura. It was a really good race just like last year. Great venue, really good testing course, safe quiet smooth roads. Loads of volunteers. And a really great atmosphere, which is the norm for Challenge races. What I was surprised with was that there was only 240 entries. I hope that people will hear about what a great race this is and come next year, it is such a good race to do for european athletes to start the season with. So come next year, you will love it.

My race was not so great. As you can read in Bella’s blog we were all a bit ill on race day, I don’t know if that is a great excuse, but for whatever reason I was a way off the pace on Sunday. But I was so happy to see Bella out there racing, she is getting her fitness back it was a great start to her comeback, especially racing with a cold and no sleep for a few days:)

I don’t feel too ill this morning, so I hope to recover quickly and get back to training and be good and strong for Ironman Lanzarote in 5 weeks time.

Chalie although not feeling 100% seemed to really enjoy his time with his grand parents and seeing all the athletets racing around. Here at Playitas here was mesmorised by the spin clases that go on, he thought it was fascinating:)

Well done Dan! the training we have been doing in Gran Canaria is working:)
