Cervelo R3SL running SRAM Red and some nice wheels, just to make the hills a touch easier.
3. What's your day job?

The Mooloolaba to Noosa Coastal route. It’s my home ride and you just can’t beat some of the views.

Cresting the River Ranch Hills just as the sun peeped over the coastline at the start of this winter, and also the first time I finished the block ride with the bunch.

Getting run off the road whilst riding home from school in grade 10, ended up down the bottom of a roadside culvert with most of the skin on my forearms taken off.
7. Bike rider you admire the most?
Fabian Cancellara – Coming from behind with 5km to go in the Olympic road race to claim third in the sprint showed just how powerful he really is.
