For 2016 I have signed up with the Bird Sealskinz Factory Team and will be riding their full suspension Aeris. Both weapons preform beautifully! My main inspiration came from seeing my dad race motocross, so i was around 2 wheels from a young age and feel at home on a bike. But i remember seeing a video of Brandon Semenuk and thats when i knew mountain biking was what I wanted to do. At the start of the year I was dreaming of racing the Enduro World Series but as we got into 2015 that soon became a reality and now Im looking to rise up the ranks to complete the dream. When Kreek visited Afan last year I stumbled across what became my favourite trail of all time ‘final descent’, it could possibly be the the gnarliest trail I’ve ever ridden but it was by far the most fun and never failed to give me that buzz I desire. Right now I’m psyched to be racing the Irish and Scottish EWS but I’m mostly looking forward to the Irish round up in the Wicklow Mountains as its new territory.

The thing that gets to me the most is when no matter how hard I try I can’t get a good flow on a course, as its just a wall stopping you from having a good race but I think the more experienced I get the easier that will be to over come. I’m really pleased to be racing for Kreek and I’m also extremely grateful of everything they do to make me a better rider and help me to reach my goals, its just never a bad time.
