Favourite tune to listen to on the bike:
Tell us about your self, Who you are and what makes you so rad?I’m currently studying Nursing at the University of Sydney, and working as a bike mechanic at Cyclery Northside in Chatswood when i’m not out riding!
Contests or just riding? Why.Bit of both - gotta mix it up & keep it interesting! I love the feeling of riding new trails and exploring with friends, but it’s hard to beat the exhilaration of race day!
What’s your all time favourite mountain biking trip? It’s hard to beat Tassie! Combining Derby and Maydena Bike Park allows you to ride some absolutely world class trails, and it’s only a 2 hour flight from Sydney!
What do you love about riding?Everything! the stoke of discovering new trails, the laughs with friends and the nervous energy of racing!
What you’re most proud of achieving through riding? Being able to have a positive influence on new riders in my local community, and inspiring them to get into mountain biking makes me more proud than any achievement on the bike! My race highlight would have to be placing third in Pro Women at the Continental Enduro Series in Derby, Tasmania.
One tip you would give to a grom wanting to become a pro rider like yourself. Go ride your bike! Be driven in what you do, stay humble, and don’t forget to have fun!
