My love of cycling began over 40 years ago when I joined my first cycling club, Wigan Wheelers and I have continued riding and racing ever since. During my racing career I have had over 80 wins, most noteworthy being 9 National Championship titles in my age group. I still regularly race as a member of Bott Cycle Team and for the 2018 season I hold two age related National Championship titles for road and circuit racing. I am a member of the Association of British Cycle Coaches qualified to their Level 3 standard and I am also a British Cycling qualified Level 2 coach.
I started cycling at the age of 8 and it has been a major part of my life since then. My dad coached and mentored me through the youth and junior ranks until I joined British Cycling's GB Olympic Development Programme and was selected to ride for the Junior World Championships in 2011. Consequently I turned professional at 18 with Raleigh GAC and then I joined Madison Genesis in 2014 and I am now in my 5th season with them, riding high profile events such as the Tour de Yorkshire and Tour of Britain. My experience of racing at all levels from youth to professional means I can provide valuable input and advice to all our athletes.
