Uphill or Downhill? Downhill
Most epic day on a bike? It's on a road bike, does that count? Tackled many of the cobbled climbs and farming roads of The Tour de Flanders with a couple of hard-man Belgian friends. We had beers and fries with mayonnaise post-ride in Oudenaarde. It was the perfect Belgian road cycling experience
I'm currently riding… Giant Trance - the standard Castlemaine-issue bike.
Favourite trails (other than Castlemaine) - Hard to say... Bright, Buller, Beechworth, Red Hill, Armidale are all great. Harcourt might top them all.
If I wasn't mountain biking I'd be... playing tennis
One day I'll ride... Moab, Utah
When I head out for a ride I never leave without... saying bye to Melissa, Dan and Alex.
What is in your backpack? The usual - tube, tyre-levers, pump, multi-tool, phone, cash, banana/muesli bar, bandaids/small bandages and a kitchen sink.
