Interests

If I’m not in front of a monitor I’ll be on a bike, on the road or on a mountain and sometimes, on a bike in front of a monitor. I’ve even been overtaken by Brad Wiggins! When bikes aren’t calling to me two legs are nearly as good as two wheels and I’ll be running. I’ve promised myself I will climb the Stelvio one day!
