DAY JOB: Physiotherapist

3 BIKE ESSENTIALS: Bike, helmet and shoes!! But 3 less ‘essential’ essentials would be…My power meter on my XC bike – I love seeing the numbers and trying to find more! My Garmin and my surgeon! (but that’s another story!!)
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.
