    I would say I’m punchy diesel like a turbo diesel i have a little bit of snap. I like taking the gamble and going on a long range attack and trying to solo to the finish I get a lot of motivation out of that king of racing.

    I came from a Motocross background i raced for 6years so technical and fast trails are my strong point, for me and the harder the conditions the better.

    Cycling is still pretty new to me as I’ve only been racing for 4years so I’m learning so much along the way.

    I have some big goals I want to achieve this year, now that Im on one of the best teams in SA with unbelievable team backing and support I can reach my full potential for the 2018 season.

    Cape Epic win African jersey and finish inside the top 10 overall.

    Win the big three day stage races in SA Sani2c, Berg and Bush and W2W

    Defend my 2017 Cape pioneer trek title in the NAD colours.
