Is the first time you have had support from the Dave Rayner Fund?

No, this will be the third year I have had support from the Dave Rayner fund.

What is your cycling history?

I started cycling when I was 13/14. I started of with just TT and then after a year moved to do the youth crits. During this time I was riding for a local club called Stockton wheelers. When I was 16 ( first year junior ) I went to a team called westbrookcyels. This was also my first year that I did a full racing season. In my second year of juniors I went to a team called adept precision, and completed my second year. I now ride for a team called team monteurano and I have been for the past two years.

What team are you joining?

My team is called monteurano. It has a very good DS called Mauro Sandroni who has been there from the start.

What is your race programme looking like?

My season starts from mid February until mid October. I race at least once a week, And unless it a stage can get up to three time a week.

Are you going on a training camp with the team?

Team training starts from the second week in January. So no winter training camp but we have an altitude training camp mid summer.

When are you heading out to Europe/USA?
