Goals for 2016: Show in the crits and some road races and always give 100% effort!
Personal Hobbies/Interests: surfing, watching films, drinking coffee and sitting in cafes!
What would you be doing if you weren’t cycling? Probably either at University or working hard in another sport!
Favorite Training Ride: It would have to be either the box hill loop or a nice 50mile ride down to Brighton and chill in a café down there!
Favorite Race: So far it would have to be a kermesse I did as a junior in Belgium. From the gun I put it in the gutter and split it to pieces!
Favorite Music: House music is my favorite but when it comes to bands and artists it would have to be Kings of Leon, Passenger, Pearl Jam, Chili Peppers and a real bad one but Justin Bieber……
If you could race any cyclist (dead or alive) who would it be and what discipline: Definitely Mario Cipollini. His class is just top notch!
Toughest race you’ve done and why: A kermesse in Belgium last year. From start to finish just torrential rain so hard that it hurt my arms and my garmin showed zero degrees at one stage. Mild hypothermia was on the cards for sure!
What cycling accomplishment are you most proud of? Getting to where I am right now!
Any unique pre-race routines or lucky charms? Get as angry as I can! That’s when I tend to fly!
