I started my cycling career on the road before moving to mountain biking and now I am back in road racing to lead Team ProTouch (currently ranked 3rd in South African Road Cycling). I believe that I have strong leadership skills and the ability to read race strategy - this is something I am focused on transferring to the younger members of the team.

I was born and raised in a small coastal town called East London, in South Africa until I moved to Johannesburg to compete as a professional cyclist. Cycling was not originally my first choice of occupation but following an injury during a rugby game made the choice to move to cycling. I have never looked back from that day on and my dream is to race in Europe and I hope to get there soon.

I am a junior cyclist with a passion for Road. My interest in cycling began with mountain biking, as I am fortunate enough to live close to a reserve. Living close to the reserve has allowed me to do a number of hours a week on my mountain bike. However, after a year of cycling I found my preference in road racing.
