I have been racing mountain bikes for over 13 years now, starting at the age of 12 racing 4X and DH. My career in 4X was a successful one becoming a multi-time national champion and reaching the very highest level of the sport until the discipline was dropped by the UCI. Following a few years off from racing, focusing on developing my career in engineer, I found XCO racing in 2017 and I was hooked straight away.

2021 - Present 

I was born in the United Kingdom, in a town called Solihull. I  was quickly in love with bikes, riding without stablisers at the age of 3 and it's been none stop since then!

I started racing at the age of 12, choosing 4X as my main disapline but soon competed in Downhill also. In 2006 I won my first National Title as a Juvenile and wen't on to win 4 further national titles on my route to Elite an World Cup racing in 2010. 

When the UCI dropped 4X, I switched focus to DH but didn't have the same success as 4X.  Only winning a few regional races and falling out of love with the sport I choose to focus on my studies and began an apprenticeship at Rolls-Royce, where I still work today. 

Between 2014 & 2017, I stopped racing but always continued to ride. I focused on other sports to keep me ticking like running. Eventually though running never gave me the same buzz so I wanted to come back, but try something new. In 2016 I entered my first XC race and in 2017 I tackled my first full season.  

After catching the bug, 2017 was my first full season of XC and shock to the system to say the least, but I love a challenge! Over the next few years I progressed through the categories, from regional to national racing and gained the support of the industries lead brands under the banner of my own race team Knight Racing. 

In 2021 I obtianed my Elite Race licence, putting me against the best XC racers in the world.  My goal now is to return to UCI World Cup Racing.
