I was born in Banbury and have lived in the Cotswolds all my life.
I got ‘properly' into cycling when I was 13 by the Stockdale Clan and have been chasing their back wheels ever since. One of my most memorable cycling moments, apart from numerous and heroic crashes, has to be an hours' ride back to Evesham in the pouring rain: flooded roads, dark skies and tidal waves from oncoming vehicles. Above all, during that experience, I learnt that even if you think you’re as wet as humanly possible, wetting oneself will always make you wetter!
My role in the team is self-appointed team clown and my hopes for 2016 are to stay upright, as much as possible, and give the Cotswold League races a good go on my shiny new Madone!
