I always to ride a bike for as long as I can remember but couldn't keep my right foot on the pedal and couldn't push with the right foot either. This made it impossible until I was older and stronger. I mastered it at 13 years old. I loved riding as I had always thought I would and was determined to learn to ride with cleets, then on the track and then compete. I have worked tirelessly at it for nearly five years.
I train every day. My British Cycling coach sets my training. I train once a week or fortnight at the track, other than that I will train for between two and four hours a day on the road circuit at the cylcopark in Kent or on the turbobike at home.. I have a fitness trainer that I travel an hour to twice a week for an hourly session. I then do hour and half exersise sessions set by her four times a week.
I love the sense of achievement when I ride well. When I came 8th in a big international road race against 27 other countries in Belgium earlier this year It felt I had pushed my own barriers back. Cycling has not only helped me to develop physically and in a muscular sense, it has given me confidence in life where I didn't have it before. It has also helped me enormously academically, both in mathematical and literacy skills. This and my self confidence and helped my articulacy. I have also been very lucky in that I have found a lot of very good friends through it as well.
Chris Hoy is my Sporting hero. He has always been so calmly determined and I have learned a lot from his book about how to deal mentally with competing and how to focus on competing against yourself for a better performance each time.
I read and I enjoy films. I used to play the trumpet but that has fallen by the wayside a bit.
