So far everyone has been sizing each other up at Sea Otter, Cyprus and other races. However, with May coming it's time to really deliver as the World Cup takes off. The suspense before a race of that magnitude is immense and gets to the bone of everyone involved at those races. It can be almost nerve wrecking but that's why we do it, and is what we've all been working towards over the winter. In 90 minutes your season can be transformed into a huge success or leave you in despair, frustration and with a lot of work still to be done. Or you can be left with that feeling of just coming up short, eager for that next opportunity to perform. World Cup racing also means travelling, transfers, hotels, booking confirmations a lot of new places and most of all a lot of waiting.
