I'm writing this from the apartment where I’m staying for the next month, while competing in the UAE. It’s situated close to Dubai Marina and it’s really an amazing experience to be here.
I had scheduled clinics here during this period and was asked to coach some riders that were competing at the shows. Then I just decided why not take a few out for myself and I'm so glad I did. Both Arabella and Larkhill Cruiser won a class each at the weekend and so the demand for clinics as rapidly increased! It's fun being here. The local people are extremely hospitable and the weather is super, even though it’s sometimes tough working in this heat.
The apartment I have is great and it allows me to have family and friends come over each week. We have a kind of roster, and when one friend or family member leaves another arrives! At the end of the day, work is work wherever you do it, but it’s not a bad way to spend January.
I’m doing three more shows here over the coming weeks so check back to see how its going.
