Started racing bicycles at the age of 8 years old when I was living in Wagin, and racing in Narrogin which was 50kms away. As a teenager we moved to Geraldton which is when I started working in Bicycle shops on the weekends with Darryl Shields. At the age of 18 years I moved down to Perth to pursue a cycling career and supported myself by working in another bicycle shop, this time with Darryl Benson.
I represented Australia at the Junior World Championships in 1991 – Colorado Springs USA. I also represented Australia as a pilot for Paul Clohessy at the World Cycling Championships for the Disabled in 1994 and 1998, winning 4 world titles and holding 2 world records. We went on to represent Australia at the Paralympic games in Atlanta 1996 winning a Silver Medal, and Sydney 2000 wining Bronze.
In 1997 I raced in the USA alongside Brett Aitken where we helped each other get numerous victories. I have raced the Asian Circuit since 2003 winning races in China, Thailand and Indonesia and was picked up by the Giant Asia Racing in 2004. By 2005 I was racing in both Europe and Asia for the Marco Polo Racing Team which included wins in Belgium and Holland in 2006.
While all of this was going on, I was working in and out of bike shops as a Mechanic and I've always serviced my own equipment. I have seen technology change from 7 speed down bar shifters to 11 speed Super Record and ridden steel frames to high tech carbon fibre.
All of this experience and knowledge has enabled me to be one of the best Bike Mechanics around. If you are looking for someone to who has experience and stories and you need a good bike service or repair, don't hesitate to call – we'll come to you!
