Got into cycling after 10 years of motor cycle racing, very expensive. Started out with Red Rose Olympic and was a founding member of Preston CC but became disillusioned with their ethics and left to become an unattached rider for a couple of years before being tempted into joining Horwich CC in 2008 by Carolyn Wright who is now my lovely wife. Moving to Horwich had a dramatic effect to my waistline over the summer of 2009 allowing me to be considerably more competitive in the Northwest Cycle Cross League finishing 3rd place in the over 50’s category. In 2010 Carolyn and I competed in some mountain bike endurance events and managed to win all three of the 10hour races in the series including the prestigious 10 under the Ben. 2010/11 cycle cross season was even better finishing 2nd. I followed this up with my 1st solo 24 hour mountain bike race finishing equal 4th overall covering 150 miles. But, injury on a mountain biking trip to France ruled me out of the 2011/12 cycle cross season. Hoping to make a comeback this season.
