Injury Update:

Hi All,

Here's a update on my injury. The news is all good. I went to the specialist and the x ray showed the femur is healing better than expected. He was quite shocked by how much bone growth I had around the break. So I am now allowed back to training and have been hitting the bitumen on my road bike. I've also started back with my personal trainer Simon from Race Elements, and he's got me working out in the gym twice a week. I'm not allowed on my down hill bike just yet, but I'll be back racing in January and i can't wait. Having this time off has really made me hungry to get back on the bike.

I've got some more good news: I've signed on with a new team for next year overseas. I can't say which team I will be riding for just yet, as I'm waiting on the press release before I can say anything. I'm really looking forward to riding a new bike for a new team, and looking forward to taking on the best tracks in the world overseas. Its been great riding for Tomac over the last 2 years, but it was time to move on, and this new team offered me a deal that was hard to resist.

My goal now is to be right in time for the Australian Championships in Adelaide, which will be the 11th January. I know my fitness will be back to normal by then and it will be my first time riding my new bike, so I'm really looking forward racing again.

I'll keep you posted on my results.
