Tell Us About Yourself

  • Job Title: Business Analyst
  • Nickname: Der Kaiser
  • Ideal Meal: I like good food, so this one is difficult. I’m known for a slight Pizza obsession (Rudy’s in Ancoats is the one). Also a big fan of seafood; oysters, squid, mussels etc. Followed up with some cheese, and maybe a pistachio ice cream.
  • Poison: Currently; Negronis. Bring on Italy!
  • Favourite Possession other than your bike: Passport
  • Top Tip: Chasing HGVs will make you fast (and probably dead.)
  • Cant do without: Coffee (Big fan of ManCoCo stuff)

Tell us a joke…

You may be kind, but German children are always kinder.

Worst Crash

Luckily I’ve never had a particularly bad one (touch wood). Though I have had some interesting altercations with bushes and barriers at various races;

  • Dolphinholme - On the front- Misjudged descent, put it in a field.
  • Nottingham -On the front- Misjudged corner, put it in the barriers
  • Oakenclough - Not on the front. Informed by a teammate “DON’T BRAKE”. Misjudged advice, put it in the bushes.

What bike do you ride?

Specialized Tarmac, Roval Rapide CLX 40s. Gate Size, all the stem, all the seatpost.
