Describe Yourself

Slightly off the wall with bags of energy. I like to have fun at everything I do, however, I like to do everything to the best of my ability. Second SUCKS refuse to lose.

 

Favorite Music

Thumping Drum and Base to Angus and JuliaStone and everything in between. I believe there is a tune for every moment of the day, Kasabian ROCK’s as does Bungle in the mix.

Favorite Food

The good old Ruby Murrey (Curry) Chicken Sag, Rice and a Peshwarri Nan you can’t beat it

Favorite Film/TV

V For Vendetta all time best movie and The Peep Show classic English comedy.

Favorite Sports

Apart from riding I surf whenever I can and have snowboarded all over the World. I also love to Kayak fish and catch dinner.

Favorite Type of Riding

Big climbs where I can get the power down followed by super fast semi technical descents with lots of switchbacks (Stromlo Rocks as does Eagle Hill)

The Perfect Day

4 Hours on the bike with 3 mountain passes followed by Mexican scrambled eggs with wraps. Followed by a couple of hours sleep curled up with Sally and then go and smash it up on 4 – 6ft Werri Point perfection. PUKKA, but it hasn’t happened very often. With the Horses I am beginning to get quite fond of going for a ride with Sally as well.

Weekly Training

Depending on the time of year, 4 - 8 hour weeks.

1 x 3 -4 hour tempo ride 250 – 280 watts

2 x 1 hour FTP rides with 2 x 20 minute efforts at 350 – 360 watts

1 x 1.5 hour VO2 hill or turbo interval sessions 5 x 5 minutes at 380 – 420 watts (Frothing at the Nostrils)

The rest recovery rides and MTB skills development

Best Adventure

Sally and I got married cat-sking/boarding at Island Lake Lodge Fernie BC in April 2000. It was a massive day with 40cms of fresh and the whole place to rip it up with our mates on a blue bird day. For the honeymoon Sally and I rode the Continental Divide MTB trail from Canada to Mexico. We covered over 5000kms and 250 000 ft of climbing on the self supported trip and it was just sooooooooooooooo good. We stopped at all the best MTB Trails in the World on the way through Colorado. It was truly an epic adventure/honeymoon with plenty of riding!?!?!?!
