Born on the 15/2/89. Live in a little place called Stow in the Scottish borders. Like motocross, California and bike jumps. Dislike Marzipan and negative people.
Started racing Mountain bikes back in 2002 when I realised I was too small for Rugby. Did my first race and finished 3rd and didn’t look back. Was Scottish Champion and British Series Champion at both Youth and Junior level. Turned Professional in 2008 and have been racing on the world cup circuit since.
Recently started coaching mountain biking for Dirt School during the winter and have been doing more and more each year.

Who inspires you and why
Many top Athletes in their respective sports. Especially guys like Chad Reed in supercross/motocross and Dan Carter in Rugby.
How do you celebrate/relax after a big event
I’ll usually have some unhealthy food and hang out with my mates and just chill. Don’t have any energy left for much else!
