Q & A with el Capitan
My Cycling Heroe/s: Laurent Fignon
How I Got Into Cycling: Carving around a self made BMX track on our farm. That led to BMX racing, then Triathlon but my swim leg was atrociously bad so focused on my strongest leg, riding. I have dabbled in endurance mountain bike racing, downhill and commuting to work
Goal Event/s of 2015: Amy’s Grand Fondo and Tour of Bright
Favorite Event and Why: Ken Dinnerville. It’s all that I love about bike racing, its tough, unforgiving, run on open country roads and to finish with the main bunch feels like winning
My Great Achievement in Cycling to date is: Setting up Sydney Uni Velo Club as its founding Club Captain and working with Jo to establish Bravehearts Turbo Studio Masters Race Team.
Motivation to Join Bravehearts Turbo StudioMasters Race Team: I was stuck between the young blokes who where going too fast and getting faster and the old and bolds who wanted to cruise. So Jo and I got chatting and thought we could build a great team based on Master Racing, all the while supporting an amazing charity. The plus is I get to improve my riding accessing to Turbo Studio training sessions
When I’m not Cycling or Working I’m: with my wife and two young girls
and .... I'm working all over the world and playing catch up on life's to do list
Turbo Studio Race Team commit to racing hard, fair and as a united force abiding by all rules and codes of conduct for the sport of cycling.
