FINALLY. After 6 weeks(!!!!) the doc says I can start working towards making a refurn to racing. It's still going to be a while before I'm wearing this kit and putting the no.3 back on my bike as I need to build back into things gradually. I also only plan to come back to racing when I am fit and strong enough to truly perform my best. This will hopefully also mean I'll be fit and strong enough to avoid crashing on my head... πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜‹

So no Madeira @world_enduro for me... 😭
Due to the head hits I sustained in Rotorua and Tasmania along with all the others in the past year the sports doctor I've been working with here has postponed my trip home to Scotland to avoid travel/jetlag and we're working together to make a full recovery before I put myself at risk of another head hit never mind racing. Pretty gutting really as it's not and injury you can see. Learning a lot... But I'm over it now and would quite like to get back to it!
So so grateful to my friend and Osteo @spurls who has had my back all through this, put a roof over my head and got me sorted with a great doctor here. πŸ’™ Also so much respect to @trekbikes for being 100% behind me in only returning when I'm fully recovered. As an athlete that kind of support is such a huge relief, thanks guys.

Helmet hair don't caaaare, but what I do care about is my head. πŸ’† Making decisions now that I hope old lady me πŸ‘΅ will be grateful for... Cus currently IT SUCKS.
.
With all this crashing I've be doing in the last two races not to mention within the past year it's been my head that's taken the brunt of the impacts... Although there have been no knockouts, these repeated hits have to be taken seriously. I had a week off post Tassie with a couple of easy rides (in @maydenabikepark πŸ’ƒπŸ˜ it was so hard not to ride more, what a place) but still wasn't 100% right. I'm easing back into things very slowly now under the careful watch of my coach @gfloridajames. It sucks becuase I just want to crack on but we only get one head, and we've gotta be careful with it and most importantly be honest with how you really feel as every concussion is different. If in doubt: less is more, resting and taking your time is key. πŸ’†πŸ’†πŸ’†πŸ’† #easydoesit #concussion #mtb

The Tassie Tiger got me πŸ™‰πŸ― Gutted doesn't even come close... I didn't make it far in Tasmania before I use my shin as a pivot mashing the living daylights out of it and dragging it over a rock to then dive bomb head first into more rocks. My leg was so fricken painful I just cried and lay down for a while breathing like a pregnant woman (minus the pushing) until the pain subsided enough for me to sit up. Very grateful to the kind spectators Nathan, Ashley and Brad for getting me off the track and being good company until the medics arrived. My 2nd DNF of my life and it SUCKS. Feeling so lucky that nothing is broken, and so far my head is okay too - I've got @wolvobricks and @headcheckhealth monortering that and plenty chill coming to let it heal. Thanks to everyone who messaged me to check I was okay, big love πŸ’• onto the next one πŸ‘Œ
Well done to @rc_mtb and @pedroburns on two excellent performances!! It was great to watch you out there 😊
