Interview

How did you first get involved in your sport?

My dad took me down to the holiday club at Herne Hill Velodrome in 2011.

What does a typical week look like for you?

2-3 indoor sessions (turbo or rollers) during the week and 2-3 ride. On the weekend, a race and a 4 hour ride.

What motivates you to continue in your sport?

I love everything about it - the feeling of riding a bike, the banter at training sessions, races and during rides.

Who is your sporting hero and why?

Chris Hoy for being such an inspiration, for his commitment, the way he always found a way, especially in that Worlds or Olympics, where he managed to find a gap where there wasn't one, and win.

What do you do in your free time?

There isn't that much free time. Home work, listening to music, chatting to friends, FIFA, football with friends, eating.
