Biography:

I have created this  DH Cycle Blog show an insight into life with a DH bike and perhaps along the way giving some good advice?

I have been riding downhill mountain bikes since about 2003 and began racing in 2005 on a kona stinky in the dragon downhill race series.

I am now racing in expert on a KTM ratchet in both the national downhill series and the pearce cycles series.

I enjoy a bit of road cycling, especially long tours. Me and my friends have been on couple cycle tours, most recently from England to Croatia, we managed to raise £4300 and counting.

I am at Loughborough university studying Civil Engineering and I captained the Loughborough Student Cycling Club  Downhill Team in 2011-12.
