Hayden Roulston - World's Time!
25 Sep, 2009 - Haydenroulston.co.nz

Firstly, sorry for the lack of updates! basically there has been nothing to report of huge interest, plus me just being plain old lazy in getting online and posting an update.. so here you go.. the long awaited one, and a good one too..

its worlds time.. i wont go on and tell you of the happenings of late.. deciding to look only forward and not back..

right now im in the team hotel with the rest of the new zealand team.. its basically a track team here in a funny kind of way.. wes gough, jessie seargent, sam bewely, cath and dayle cheatley, tim gudsell and also katie boyd and her partner glenn… all from the track team and how good does it feel to be back with familiar faces and accents too… im loving it and i feel good and motivated for sunday..

the course is super hard.. but a good course.. i feel that if they ride hard there will be not many finishes, including some very big names. it will be interesting to see what tactics the big teams play. i think alot of the riders will fear this course so it may be a very different race to what is the norm.. you never know there could be 30 at the finish… the two climbs are not overly long, but covering them 2 times each lap and 19 laps will make them very testing for each and everyone of us.. no matter who you are, or what youve achieved prior to sunday, to win here will require a strong mind, great fitness and luck…

my own personal goals will be to hide and conserve as much as energy as possible.. every pedal stroke is a kj, so to save as many as i can will be the goal of the day… i want to be there for the last part of the race and coming into this race i have had very good sensations so time will tell.. our team is pretty good. guddy has just come off the vuelta so he is fit… jeremy vennel has come from the states where he has had a good season and he is a very good rider too so its a nice wee team…

all in all i feel good.. im happy to be here in what is one of the last races of the european year and it would be nice very nice to do a great race.. i just want that perfect day and i will be happy..

apart from that the family is good.. moses is great, happy, relaxed as ever and as off tomorrow they will be all on the plane headed back to new zealand.. ange the kids and moses are so excited to go home.. it makes you realise how great nz is when your away for so long. not long now!!!

thanks for reading.. wont be so long between drinks next time.. i promise!
