Is the first time you have had support from the Dave Rayner Fund?
This is the first time I have had support from the Dave Rayner Fund.
What is your cycling history?
I've been cycling for six years and I'm currently heading into my fourth season of racing. My dad introduced me to cycling by buying Mountain Biking UK magazines and watching the Tour De France.
What team are you joining?
I will be riding and racing for All Terrain Cycles Road Team.
What is your race programme looking like?
Late February is when my first races are; domestic elite races in the North of England. I'll also be doing ten and twenty-five mile time trials, as this is an area I show promise in and want to develop. Big races include the Eddie Soens Classic and Clayton Velo, plus the regional Championships and local elite races. I hope to place well in all these races after a winter of consistently putting in the big hours and miles. At the start of June I'll be travelling out to Belgium and racing several times a week till the end of August.
Are you going on a training camp with the team?
No, but I'll be going on a training camp in March and hopefully again in either April or May to prepare for Belgium.
When are you heading out to Europe/USA?
I'm heading out to Belgium in June.
