Which bikes and HUNT wheels do you ride? Mason Bokeh and RAW. Adventure Carbon disc on the Bokeh, All Mountain Carbon on the RAW.
Favourite riding experience to date? Too hard to say. I'll narrow it down to favourite of 2023 and say the Highland Trail.
What are your plans for 2024? I'm considering Highland Trail ITT to dig a little deeper into the immersive experience of racing. I'd also like to do a longer tour this year in the mountains, TBC.
What does riding or ultra racing mean to you? Riding is how I travel, stay healthy and active and keep my mind in check, it's an essential part of my everyday life. Racing allows me to take that everyday and make it feel exceptional.
Favourite ride snack: Battenburg
Soundtrack to your ride: This playlist is only for racing. I've been adding to it over the years and it has a lot of memories that I now associate with these tunes!
