Abbey will be on BBC Sports Radio tomorrow night (Thursday the 27th of January).
Seeing as Abbey is quite shy with interviews etc, she did really well.

Many thanks to Graeme Mac for being so kind and understanding of Abbey, as she is so young. The interview is on just after 9pm. There will also be an edited down version for a programme to run at a later date. Here is the link to the programme tomorrow:

Base miles today with my dad following in the car.
Soo hilly and actually quite cold today 🥶
With my great luck, I managed to get a headwind out and literally no wind on the way back 🙄👍
It was 1 degree and I was wearing so many layers, looking a bit big ngl😎
Photo credit to my dad again
Thanks for following me around all day😂

Yesterday me and my dad went up to a hotel for the TT today at Mallory Park.

We went up with one other team mate, Jamie, who did really well. I came 2nd 12 year old girl, by 1 second. My time was pretty far of my PB but I did a 26:39.

There were many places I could have improved but I guess I now know for next time.
The wind was quite strong and headwind up hill + tailwind down hill.

It was 10 laps and a bit equalling 10 miles.

It was a nice course but I would have preferred better conditions.

Well done to everyone who raced today!

Dad called me to say that somehow I had won a medal and we should go to the TT and see what I had won. I thought I had come 4th Junior, so it was amazing to find i came 2nd overall-juvenile and 1st Girl Juvenile.

Thanks to the IDCA and Paul Moss for the presentation.

TT people are the friendliest to be around. I cant wait until next year…

Today I did a 30 mile TT. My average speed was 22.8 mph and I completed the course in 1:19:59. It was really fun, but it hurt. The head winds were terrible but the tail winds were great. The winds were really strong but it was really warm as well. There were 16 roundabouts in total and I was 1st juvenile / junior because I was the only one.

The Postman turned up this morning and to my surprise I was given most of the post.
I opened up the letters and small parcels to find some amazing things.
I received:

A medal for coming First Juvenile in the 25 Mile TT National Championships
A medal for coming 2nd Junior (Under 18) in the 25 Mile TT National Championships
1st place in the 10-14 year old Goodwood 7.1m TT + £20!!
1st place in the 10-14 year old Goodwood 7.1m TT + £20!!
Thanet RC 10TT 1st Juvenile and Junior Course Record (Q10/30) (24:56)
I like the money, that was a surprise, but I especially like the 2nd place Junior National Championship medal. I’m 12 and not thinking about Junior (Under 18s) medals.

Today I did the Plomesgate CC 5 mile TT and got a new PB of 12:47.

I like having a person in front of me who I can chase and get within sight of, but this time it was the opposite with an adult, Hannah O’Brien starting a minute behind me. I was expecting her to overtake me very quickly as she is super fast and powerful so when I got to the roundabout, she had almost caught up to me and on the way back she gained loads of time on me and overtook me at a very fast speed. I loved trying to stay away and not getting caught. Every minute I stayed away felt like a little win. She got a great overall time and beat me by 1:09. I’m pretty happy with my time too.

I really enjoyed it today and everyone was super friendly. We’ll done to everyone who raced today!
