I love to ride, run and climb. Uphill, down dale and all around the South West and the World. I’ve been mountain biking since 2006, when a friend invited me to ride the famous Gondola in Queenstown, New Zealand. I hit every tree on the way down and was hooked. It’s been my passion ever since.
Over the years, I completed ultra-marathons, multi-day stage races and single day events. In 2011 after a run in with a truck, I lost my right glute max. You could say that I’ve been half-arsed, but fully committed ever since.
As well as going long, I love to go high. Last year, I climbed to over 6,500 metres on the highest mountain outside the Himalayas, Aconcagua in Argentina. Most recently, I did three Everesting Challenges in three months, including a 13 hour effort to complete 9,201 metres with Matt Jones.
I love the Team JMC ethos and people, which is why I joined. I’m looking forward to completing more adventures with the team. You can follow my exploits on Instagram or through my blog – Half-arsed Racer.
