I am currently racing in the Under 19 Junior category so want to try and gain as much race experience as I can before moving up to Under 23 next year. It has been a disrupted year as I have been unable to travel to European races to compete but I have had the opportunity to race in Australia to pick up valuable UCI points.
Bikes in your garage: Cyclocross bike, Road bike, Enduro bike, BMX bike, XC Hardtail bike and my main full suspension XCO race bike – Trek Supercaliber
Favourite Biomaxa Product: Its got to be Biomaxa Bio-Wash for sure
Favourite Food: Chocolate or Banana Bread with chocolate icing
Favourite place to ride: Christchurch because it gives you a variety of steep, flowing, tree roots, rocks, jumps and pretty much anything you’d want on a track
Best cycling memory: Traveling over to America for racing but due to COVID we only lasted there for a week but the travel experience and being able to ride other there was great.
Most notable results: 1st U19 2021 Junior World Series (Australia), 1st U17 2020 Oceania MTB Champs, 1st U19 2019 Cyclocross National Championships; 2nd U19 2021 NZMTB Champs,
Aspiration - What you dream about achieving on your bike: I would love to represent NZ at the Olympics and I have a near future goal of representing NZ at the Commonwealth Games
To relax I: Ride my bike or play on my phone
If you weren’t riding/racing bikes – what do you think you would do instead? I’d want to find a pathway in multi sport
