Nationals this year was a very different experience compared to the other at least 10-13 National champs I've raced in. In elite men, we had 9 riders enter and was over a very small national champs in terms of elite racing. Pretty concerning if you ask me, to see the elite riders in NZ starting to dwindle. I overall had an alright time, but in terms of results nothing to good. I've been struggling these last three months with my elbow injury constantly being a pain having to maintain it on a day to day basis but I made some big steps forward back to riding more like myself and cannot wait to get back to riding comfortable pain free on my bike again!
