Inspiration

I started my sporting career with squash. Then running, multisport, mountain biking, road and time trial racing. In general I love competition and I find it keeps me motivated for training. 

I have competed in a lot of overseas events and a lot of my enjoyment comes not only for the competition but also the places I get to visit. 

Cycleways have been a big part of my cycling success and I appreciate their help and expertise they provide.

What inspires me are chances to travel to compete and motivated friends.
