Behind The Mask

For the past few months I’ve been fighting a battle with myself.

Stumbling Over Rocks

As I hiked my way up a climb far too steep and muddy to ride on a gravel bike, stumbling over rocks and tangled vegetation, at the end of an eight-hour ride, in complete darkness, [...]

Racing The Clock:

At the beginning of the year I announced that I would be back on the bike in 2019 and that I would be riding for Orbea Racing Team. I also said that I would bring [...]

Crossing Over

It’s been a weird six months; weird, but surprisingly great. I’m experiencing the world of ‘real’ work for the first time, and I’m grateful to be a part of lots of exciting projects and doing [...]
