Interview

How long have you been riding and how did you get started?

About 10 years now. My parents owned a chalet nr Morzine so a few Pro riders came along and I got in to riding that way. Especially through former World Champion Vanessa Quin, and now CRC manager Nigel Page. But I owe it to my parents, for dragging me down fire roads and driving me to the BMX track every wendnesday. 

 

What keeps you motivated and pushes you to progress as an athlete?

Simply the thought of losing. 

 

What is your proudest moment as a professional athlete and what are your goals for next season?

I think out of all the results and podiums, it goes beyond that. I raised £10k for a charity called Coppafeel, and that was a feeling that even winning struggles to compare. I couldn’t have done it without the help of my friends, family, and sponsors. It was an amazing project that only brought everyone closer.

 

What motivated you to sign with Fox and what do you think you can contribute to Fox as a company?

As I said, since a youngster I’ve been a huge fan of Fox, so when the opportunity came, there was no second thoughts! I think I can make their kit look good… ;-)

 

Any other comments or important factoids you'd like to share? 

Fox make me feel special, and at home. It’s been a great journey so far, and I can’t wait to see what the futur can bring. Cheers to being such an amazing sponsor. x
