First bike & favoruite bike?
My first proper bike was a Kona Scrap hardtail which I worked hard to saved for so I was so proud and really in love with this bike! My favourite bike has to be the next bike I owned which was the 24 Cycles Porn King, which I still have now. I love it simply because of the memories created on this bike, so much fun riding so many dirt jump locations when I was younger.
What has been your worst crash over the years?
Concussion. I ended up with fluid build up on the back of my brain and I was out of the sport for nearly two years because of this injury. I feel very lucky to be completely healed up and recovered from this injury now. Please look after your head people.
You have the joys of testing both a P1 and P2 Privateer, how have you been getting on with them?
First impressions, Love it! Playful yet planted. Easy to ride fast and simply let the bike do the work. Its so hard to find a bike you can just jump on and feel comfortable straight away but the 141 is exactly this. I have been testing out the two sizes and it's really good to feel the benefits of both sizes on various trails, with the P2 coming into its own on the high speeds trails, but the P1 being the super fun playful bike, they both guarantee smiles!
What made you want to start coaching after finishing racing?
I have always been coaching along side racing since 2010. It has always been something I have loved, helping people improve and reach goals. For me its great working with people all different levels and abilities but all share the same passion for riding bikes. I will always love racing and always want to be involved where I can and coaching allows me to be involved working with some of our racers but from a different perspective, from the other side of the tape.
