Cross training with Subaru athletes Molly Taylor and Courtney Atkinson.

In the lead up to her first triathlon at Noosa, Subaru rally driver Molly Taylor flew up to the Gold Coast for some race tips from two time olympian Courtney Atkinson. Shame about the weather.

2015 Enduro National Mountain Bike Championships with Giant AMC


SEQ MTB Enduro with Giant AMC

Had a great weekend in Toowoomba watching my first MTB Enduro race with Giant AMC and an assortment of hitters.  Great fun and a proper MTB educational immersion experience.  When we weren’t at the trails we were talking bikes or watching world cup races on youtube.  It’s fair to say I was lost for most of the conversations.  Good times.  Few pics below.

33-26 ride for charity: water

Over the Christmas break I photographed the 33-26 ride for charity: water.  The crew left Bondi Beach on Boxing Day and arrived at Noosa on New Years Eve, a total of 1300km ridden with approx 14000m of elevation.  Through their amazing efforts the team raised $73,000 for charity: water.  Great scenery, great time.

John John Florence

Couple of oldies shot in Northern NSW in Feb this year but since John John Florence is the flavour of the month (well he kind of is every month…) I thought I’d stick ’em up.  Love watching him surf even in rubbish waves like these ones.  Dead set amazing.

(PS. Click on the last one and it should run as a sequence)

Ironman 70.3 Port Macquarie

Spent the weekend in Port Macquarie at the Ironman 70.3 race.

Congratulations to all of the crew competing over that distance for the first time and to Clint Kimmins for making the cut for the 70.3 World Championship in Las Vegas next year.


Swim at The Spit

Went for a quick swim at the southern end of The Spit this morning.  Looking back at the beach the contrast in the skyline is amazing.  Concrete jungle to the south, trees and uncrowded beaches to the north.

 

I’ll take the view to the north any day…


Tour de Valley 2012

Snuck out for a look at the Tour de Valley cycling time trial event in Currumbin Valley.  Plenty of cool bikes and uncool lycra.


Cool places…

The coolest places aren’t always the flash ones.  This thing started out in 1919 as a church, moved and became a house in 1981 and for the last 5 or so years has been a recording studio.  Best party house ever!


Bread & Butter

It’s not all fun and games this gig.  Couple of jobs from the last week.  Bills to pay…


Smoko with Clipper

Caught up with Surfer/Lifeguard/Tri(hard)athlete Clint ‘Clipper’ Kimmins on his hard earned smoko break from patrolling the flags at Coolangatta beach today.  Watching waves roll through the “office” all day must drive these guys nuts.  Picked up a copy of the latest Australian Triathlete magazine on the way home.  Has a  good write up by Clint (and a few of my pics) about his first Ironman race in Cairns.

 


Winter weather

Winter on the Gold Coast isn’t too tough.  Warm water, offshore breezes and sunshine make for some good beach days.  Couple of pics of Chris “Ibis” Bennetts taking advantage of the great conditions this week.


Friday 13th fight night

Shot some photos for No Excuses Promotions of the boxing pro-am that they put on at Matrix Boxing Gym in Southport.

Winter waves

We’ve had a pretty good winter in the wave dept.
