Date of Birth

A description of the kind of rider you are?
I’m an attacking rider and love a hilly course.

What are your strengths on the bike?
I love the mountains; climbing, descending and cornering.

What’s the most significant (good or bad) thing that has happened to you during your career?
Becoming 2016 Junior European XC MTB Champion has been my biggest title so far, however in the same year I also came 3rd at my first Road European Champs. This gave me an insight into international racing and gave me confidence to compete further at World class level.

Who inspired you to start cycling?
We hired some mountain bikes at a trail centre on a family holiday in Scotland, and I just loved it! When we returned home I immediately bought myself a MTB and from then on cycling has always been my passion.

What interests do you have away from cycling?
I had a couple of motocross bikes which was great fun but sold them when I started cycling more seriously, I also enjoy bouldering/indoor rock climbing, cross country running and sports nutrition.
