Why mountain biking will improve your road riding.

I wish that many years ago, right back at the start, I had been introduced to mountain biking. I think it would have made me a more all round better road cyclist, and I say this for various reasons. If we have a look at past and present pro’s, quite a few have come from […]

Out with old, in with the new

As we approach the end of yet another year, it’s time to sit back and reflect on what we have achieved, and what we didn’t achieve, hoping that 2018 will bring a fresh new start. This was always my mentality when it came to setting goals with my career as a professional cyclist. I was […]

Food for thought

  Nutrition is a subject I have always been very interested in, and at the same time, scared of, Calorie counting is something I think that most of us have done at times. Trying to gauge whether you can eat something based on the caloric amount. I personally hate how in the USA, everywhere you […]

I despise the word diet. By definition diet is defined as “the kinds of food that a person, animal, or community habitually eats”.

Two weeks without my beloved Aura-lie, (my Aura x Ridley), and I must admit, it is driving me insane. I miss how it feels to be on my bike, either alone or surrounded by people. The freedom I feel, the way I am able to express my thoughts and emotions through the simple action of […]

How to fuel your body the right way.

Understanding how to fuel your body to become a better athlete. If there is one thing I wish I had learnt more about as a young athlete, it would have been the importance around feeling your body. I say this, and then I stop and think to myself, that perhaps based on my personality type, […]
mental health

Take time out to just breathe.

We all need to take a moment to breathe, to relax, to regroup, to rethink or regather our thoughts and assess our objectives and goals in life. For me, taking a breathe is riding my bike, whether it be for just a moment, a couple of hours, or half the day. The bike for me […]

How to become a more confident criterium racer

Step one… have fun! I’m coming into week 6 of being in the USA, and approaching the final 10 days of racing with my team Roxsolt Attaquer. I say “my” team, because I really feel like they are becoming my team. We have all certainly bonded over the past few weeks, and it seems like […]
