If you weren’t a cyclist you’d be: I’d have liked to have been a runny league player but not to sure that would have happened.
Favourite climb: Is there such a thing? I suppose I would have to say the Koppenberg is always fun in a weird sort of way.
First cycling memory: Crashing in kwiksave car park when I had just learnt how to ride with out stabilisers. I didn’t realise back then that you can’t pedal around every corner.
When you are warming up you listen to: Usually it would be some sort of EDM but a lot of the time Arctic monkeys get thrown in there as well.
If you were stuck in a lift with anyone who would it be with: Freddy Flintoff would pretty entertaining from what I’ve seen of him on TV and I used to love watching him play cricket.
