Started Racing: Aged 8, I visited a bike show with my Dad and became immediately hooked on the skills that were involved. I started riding competitively at 8, beginning with trials riding and later moved onto my local dual races and then in 2003 I began 4X racing. I have also been a professional dirt jumper but now racing has taken over as my main focus. As of 2015 I’m trying out a bit of Gravity Enduro and focusing on my coaching more.
Hobbies: Bikes, bouldering, running Chicksands bike park & Bedfordshire Beard Co along with working on my mk1 caddy pickup.
What Bikes do you own: Identiti Krisis Sl 4x bike, Saracen ALX dirt jump bike, Identiti Krisis Mx race bmx. Giant Defy, Mondraker Foxy Carbon.
Memories: My first national race which turned out to be national champs in 2003 and placing 3rd.
Goals: To be as successful in 4X racing and to provide top level coaching.
