Having been drawn to multisport and adventure racing 8 years ago, I have steadily developed my skill set and enjoyed a particular successful season in the last 18months. Racing with different teams is interesting and working together as a team is great fun. I really enjoy the navigation side of AR and some of the very remote places you visit. Recently completed my 4th Coast to Coast in NZ. I race to do well in all events but enjoy my racing at the same time and love the friendly people in AR. See you at a race soon!
