Please Help Support Me For 2013

I don't usually use the blog to promote myself, but I thought I could make one exception.

I came across a recent campaign by SportPursuit at the weekend, which pledges to provide financial support to athletes trying to accomplish a goal or objectives in 2013. Many of you may well have read my Objectives for 2013 post, which detailed my hopes for this year, but if not this is my pledge for 2013:

"My pledge is to make 2013 my best year on the bike to date...

Last year I moved from 4th cat. road racing up to 2nd cat. in one season and completed 10,000+ miles on the bike. This year I want to make the big step up to category 1 racing, and get a few more race wins whilst doing so. I'm also hoping to complete another epic mountain tour; in 2011 I did a 1480 mile unsupported bike tour through France and Spain, taking in the Alps and the Pyrenees. It was an enormous challenge, but incredibly rewarding, and a fantastic way to see the country. I am hoping to do something similar, perhaps in Scandinavia this year. Off-road I am aiming to complete the South Downs Way (100 miles) in one day; it should be around 10 hours of solid riding time, and I'm sure my legs are going to really feel the strain. 

It's going to be a challenge: This year I graduate from university and need to find a job, hopefully in the bike industry. As a student, finding the backing for my racing can sometimes be a struggle. It would be amazing if SportPursuit could help me to achieve my goals for 2013."

To support my pledge, and try to make it happen through SportPursuit's support in 2013, all you have to do is click the 'Vote' button on this Facebook page: ''. Please take a few seconds to do it, it could make all the difference to how my year on the bike develops in 2013.
