Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport? He got his first bike when he was three and his first road bike when he was 16. He couldn't straddle it and had to run with the bike and then jump on.
Why this sport? A lot of his racing career was spent on the mountain bike but there weren't as many opportunities. Track racing allows him to show himself and everyone else his best. He believes he's achieved more in the last couple of years than he ever did on the mountain bike.
Club / Team Endura Racing Team:
Name of coach None
Training Regime He does most of his training commuting the 60 mile round trip to and from work.
