Ride far. Ride everything. From trans-European road tours to 12 hour mountain bike races and cyclocross stage races: the bike is about freedom and exploration for me. A chance to see new places; meet new people; and push bike, body and mind further than before. My ambition is always to go longer, or climber higher — to find the roads and trails that have yet to be discovered; whether just outside your back door, or in a far off continent. Having explored a lot on road and gravel bikes, I am looking forward to the Kona Hei Hei enabling me to take on even more remote, challenging, and far flung off-road adventures in 2019.
