Oh What Fun To Train In The Sun!

Pulse Mallorca Training Camp 2017 Having done a training camp in Alicante last year I had an idea as to what to expect in Mallorca this year: an escape from work, sunshine, training with like-minded people, working with new coaches, lots of food, fun & (some) drink, plenty of hours in the saddle, on the […]


A year in Pulse – David O’Brien

Ah sure why not? A year in Pulse. Early mid-morning October 5th 2016, what the hell have I just done, that’s the thought that pops in the head, or may have been screamed in the office a couple hours after signing up for Barcelona next year, how did I end up here?? Well….. I recall […]
