Fyshwick, Canberra, Australia
Growing up with two older brothers and a street full of boys meant my childhood was spent outdoors riding bikes and making the most of every dirt related activity a kid could think of. It wasn’t long though before I discovered horses, so I parked my bike for about 20 years whilst I competed in numerous disciplines throughout Australia up to National level. It was a new road bike for my 30th birthday that sparked something again and my horse was sold and replaced by what is now a garage full of bikes!
Not one to sit still for too long, I’ve managed to cram a fair bit in to my spare time over the last four years. I’ve been adventure racing, I’ve cycled 1600km from Canberra to Brisbane, I’m an Ironman and I’ve represented Australia at the Xterra World Championships in Maui. Now I’ve chosen to focus on the one thing that I’ve enjoyed the most; mountain biking. So this year I’ll be stepping out with my endurance legs for some XCM races throughout Australia.
