“I have been mountain biking on and off since I realised my bmx was no good for covering the necessary miles between all the best trails spots in days of ‘yore.  Now it is mostly trail riding with my family, the odd xc race, some team endurance events for fun and push-up laps at the local DH park. I won’t trouble any podiums anywhere, so races are just a fun outing with my family. I am also a part-time mechanic and pit chief for Karen for her races and the welfare officer for the Beyond the Mud kids MTB club based at QECP in the South Downs”
