Sporting highlights

Paddlesport

Over 30 years of kayaking around the world, including numerous 1st descents in India, Kenya and Peru. I spent 7 years as head coach to the GB freestyle kayak team and I also raced in the premiere division for canoe slalom.

Mountain bike

Over the last ten years I have been riding in some of the worlds top MTB destinations including Moab, Whistler, California and all the major European resorts. Most recently getting into racing and have raced at some Enduro events and the 24 hrs of mountain mayhem.



Favourite destination

India still has to be my favourite place as its always an adventure and the people are amazing, and I love the food!



Inspiration

People that never stop trying to improve and push themselves and their sport, new trails and un-paddled rivers!



Next Adventure

Get fixed so I can get on the water again and have some adventures, there so many rivers to run!
