About me

All my life I have loved training and racing and pushing to get the best out of myself, no matter what the sport.  I started off as a runner, then moved into multisport which also satisfied my love of adventure.  In more recent years I have spent most of my spare time on a bike.  Mountain biking is my passion and there is nothing I love more than to race my mountain bike.

My mantra is to try my best at whatever I do. I am a terrible housekeeper, cake baker, and singer but I give these things my full effort regardless (other than the housekeeping!).

I am inspired by watching the MTB World Cups, especially my favourite rider Pauline Ferrand-Prevot.  She rocks! I love nature, epic views and racing and riding my bike in beautiful places.  

I am inspired simply by trying to ride my bike better and faster.
