About me: I am currently in year 10 at O'Connor Catholic College. I am a member of the local road and mountain bikes clubs in Armidale. If I'm on a bike I'm happy, doesn't matter what sort. I'm pretty adventurous and like to try new things when I have the opportunity.

How it started: I have always enjoyed riding a bike, growing up in New Zealand played a big part of it as my family would often ride along nearby rail trails. When we moved to NZ my dad found his love for mountain biking and has gradually got the rest of the family involved. I entered and won my first bike race in 2008 near the south coast of Western Australia on a 20 inch bike. Soon after we moved to Armidale and my dad joined the local mountain bike club. One race he took me along and we rode the race on a tandem. After a season on the tandem, I decided I wanted to race on my own. Since then my love for riding has grown, bringing amazing experiences, taken me to many places and given me the opportunity to meet some amazing people.
