What do you want to achieve in 2018?
In 2018 I would like to get back up near the front of the EWS field consistently. 2017 was a tough year and I struggled with the season. I am super excited about working hard and riding well at every round in 2018.

I am from Wollongong, NSW and just returned to live there with my wife and 2 kids. I lived in Vancouver, BC, Canada from 2012-2017 riding and racing mountain bikes in one of the most famous mountain bike destinations in the world. I quit my job in 2012 to chase the dream and aim for a professional mountain bike contract with Giant Bicycles. After a successful debut year in 2012 on the North American circuit i secured a pro contract with the Giant Factory Off Road Team. I still currently ride for them today focusing on the Enduro World Series. I have also worked with my coach, Mark Fenner, since 2008.
