What bike do you ride, whats your fav bit?
Saracen Myst Team. Fav bit Saint kit on it, because the shifting is really snappy and smooth. Saracen Mantra Carbon for XC. Fav bit is the fork because although the bike is short travel, it soaks up the hits amazingly well. Saracen Zen 4 for mucking about. Fav bit is the bombproof frame which has taken me through years of riding and abuse, and is still riding as sweet as day 1.

Who inspires you?
Steve Peat. Because he spent years trying to be world champ, and never gave up which showed great determination.

What’s the dream for 2015 season?
To try and get top ten at as many rounds of the BDS as possible.

Where is your favourite trail, and why?
So many to choose from but probably double drops at Danbury. Because it is the nearest trail and I have probably ridden it more times than anywhere else.

Which event do you look forward to the most?
Peaty’s Steel City because the atmosphere there is second to none.

What is your best race experience to date, why?
Probably when I got 1st at round three of the 661 mini dh at the Forest of Dean on Corckscrew, because I had been trying to get 1st there for over 2 years, and then I finally got it on the last race on my Orange 223.

Is there any advice you would share with riders?
Race your own race and have fun.

What is the most desirable piece of kit?
Probably some Chris King hubs on Enve rims.

What is your favourite trail/race grub?
Full English #2 at the round bush pub/as much food as possible.

What niggles you?
Punctures and dropping chains mid race run!
