After hanging up my football boots due to a number of ankle injuries, I started racing bikes in 2013. I got up to 2nd Cat within the year and was up at the front in regional road races and crits across 2014 and 2015.
In the winter of 2015 I crashed heavily, sustaining a serious injury to my eye. I wrote off the 2016 season and focused on building for 2017. THRE Datawovles picked me up for the 2017 season and I took my first win of the year in April, winning the sprint in a hectic final. I kept placing on the podium and top-5 over the summer, often in hilly races.
