Thank you TS5C for your continued support of Jamie’s Racing career. We really appreciate it.
After a family loss Jamie had taken a bit of a break from racing and now he is recovering from a bout of the flu. It’s taken it out of him but he’s hoping to get back to racing this week. Next year is going to be an interesting one!

I’ve had a really busy summer! It began with Rugby 7s in Japan where I captained Hartpury College. Japan was fascinating and the rugby was challenging. I was lucky enough to be asked to give the Athletes Oath at the opening ceremony and speak on behalf of all the English speaking competitors. It was an experience I will never forget.
