Favourite Food: I’m Cornish through and through – it has to be a real cornish pasty and saffron buns
Training area: West Penwith, Cornwall. It has a rugged coast, good climbs. During the winter I go to the Waitakere Ranges in New Zealand
If you weren’t a cyclist you’d be: Fat!
Favourite climb: Haytor in Dartmoor Devon, I have good memories from racing over it at the Tour of Britain memories. All climbs are painful but your body doesn’t remember pain I’m told…
First cycling memory: Going to mountain bike races as a 12 year-old with my mum. I was fat useless but loving it. It spawned ideas in my head and gave me something to do as a life long passion
When you are warming up you listen to: Rudimental or some old skool late 90’s trance
If you were stuck in a lift with anyone who would it be with: Team-mate Stevie Williams – King of Banter or Sir David Attenborough
What’s your favourite travel destination: Not found my ideal place yet, the world is so big. I’ll possibly never find it. Home in Cornwall will always be first call until it rains!
