"I have been riding bikes all my life- from BMX & Trials, Road, Cyclo-cross through too Mountain Bikes. I started out riding for a local youth cycling team, Team Darenth-  competing in every level from Local / Regional to National level. Highlights including; Representing London in the 'London Youth Racing Squad' and becoming 'South East England Regional BSCA Champion'.

Nowadays I focus on mountain biking- setting challenges, exploring new places... the fun, flexibility and freedom this gives me is second to none. Competition wise I now solely focus on cross country endurance events- anything from 6 hours to 24 hours mountain biking."

"I started riding back in 1998 with a local club called Team Darenth where I competed at a local and National level… I have ridden in a few disciplines including: cycle speedway, mountain bike, cyclo-cross, and Road racing.

 

I have been very fortunate to have represented London in cyclo-cross and be a part of the British Cycling Talent Team. 

 

I am now working hard to compete in endurance events from 6 hours to 24 hours. 

 

When I'm not completing i will be doing what riding a bike is all about, I will be out exploring new woods and trails generally having fun with friends who have the same interest in riding a bike."

"I began my love for mountain biking from a child racing my friends down a man made track in my back garden and swiftly joined team darenth with Craig, I thoroughly enjoyed them years riding XC, but found I was better on the downs than the ups, climbing became a means to an end to me.

 

Years later I've found the Enduro racing really suits my style, I really enjoy smashing berms and gravity fed trails. Trying to be as fast as I can choosing different lines and searching for grip gives me a buzz. I usually can be found searching out new trails to challenge me and attend alot of social rides as I really enjoy the social aspect of riding, from Surrey Hills, Aston Hill to the Forest of Dean I love discovering new places if you bump into me say hi.... Come ride with me at a SWICK Social!"
