I am a passionate, determined and hardworking individual and have been a Professional Cyclist for the past 6 years. I started my courier racing on an amateur road team, TCS, and did a full year with Team Bonitas Pro Cycling in 2011. After that I made the switch to mountain biking with Team Westvaal Columbia. I just fell in love with the sport of mountain biking and just love the challenges that come with racing off road. I’m a team player and have represented the national team twice in road tours. Mountain biking suits my abilities perfectly and I’ve achieved some great results over the past three years and feel I can improve on that and also give back more to the sport itself in terms of development.

When I’m not racing I also write articles and race reports for Do IT Now Magazine.

-Ashburton series win: to do this need 5 great results out of 7 races.
