Q&As

Greatest achievement so far?
My greatest achievement so far would be finishing in 5th place for the Prudential Ride London event in 2015. The route was 100 Miles and there were 27,000 participants.
What’s your favourite meal/recipe?
I have to say porridge – I can’t live without it, all year round you will find me every morning with a big bowl of porridge, banana and crunchy peanut butter stirred in!!
What’s your greatest motivation?
I played football at a good level from the age of 9 till about 27, throughout school and then University and beyond. I captained teams, won trophies, scored goals and I have some amazing memories. However, with football I guess that I could only ever keep winning leagues and trophies. I would never be good enough to be promoted or get to a semi-pro level. With Cycling and in particular Fixed Gear Crit racing, I haven’t reached my potential. The guy who won the Red Hook Crit Series in 2015 was 35. What keeps me motivated is that I have yet to peak. Myself along with the team have huge potential, we don’t know how far we can go in this sport and that is a huge motivation for all of us.
If you weren’t cycling what would you be doing instead?
I’d be a chef in a professional kitchen or maybe running my own bike workshop/cafe/bakery – this is the dream!!
