About you I am a lover of nature and adventure sport, in a very happy relationship with my fiancé, Paul. My main line of work is Software Development. I participated competitively in the sport of Mountain biking for 18 years semi-retiring due to injury in 2014. Always keen for a new adventure I joined Team Nevarest for a few events in 2017 which I thoroughly enjoyed and I’m super excited to be a part of the team for 2018.
