“I started cycling at the age of about 14 years. I was in High School and got introduced to the sport through a friend. At the time I loved sports, I played rugby, did athletics, cross country running, cycling, and some swimming. I wanted to do it all to find out what I really enjoy doing and it turned out to be cycling.
From 17 years old I started solely focusing on cycling as a sport and left all the other sports.
I’ve been fortunate enough to travel the world with a bike and Race in a lot of different countries. I’ve had a couple of national & Continental track titles. I’ve achieved podiums in most of the big one-day classic road races like the Cape Town Cycle Tour, Amashova, and Ride Joburg. I’ve had the privilege of reaching the Cape Epic podium for the African Red jersey where we finished second, second at Joberg2C and Wines2whales and Sani2c.
Since starting the mountain bike journey, it has always been a goal to with the African Jersey at the Cape Epic, and it still is. I would also love to still win a SA title on the mountain bike. SAXCM champs have always been a dream of mine to get onto the top step of the podium.
It is great being part of the Valley Electrical Titan Racing team. The team has grown tremendously over the past couple of years through the difficult times we’ve faced during Covid. It is exciting being part of the growth, and I hope I can bring some value to help the team grow and grow with the team and also help the younger riders grow within the team.
