What do you love most about cycling?

I usually sing a song to myself when I am racing on the limit.

What has cycling taught you?

Favourite race
My favorite race annually is Berg and Dale but a once off race was Junior World Champs 2016.

Interests away from cycling
I listen to tropical house and EDM music or eating braaivleis.

The most embarrassing moment was when I tried to weelie my bicycle in front of Cradlestone Mall and fell over backwards.
