Been riding for years, however started racing in 2018 to ‘give it a go’ and I had a great time. Managed to get 3 top tens and enough points to get 3rd Cat. If anyone is thinking about giving racing a try, go for it! What have you got to loose!

I'm a relatively new member to VCGH (just over a year) but I’ve been racing for 4 years initially in London at both Lee Valley and Hillingdon circuits. Since moving out of London I’ve been able to grab a win at Dunsfold Park early last season to move up to Cat 3. More recently I’ve raced at the Goodwood circuit but I’m also looking to compete in some of the ‘flatter’ road races this season.

I only really started towards the end of 2018 with a few crit races but enjoyed it so much that I trained over the winter to target an early promotion to Cat 3 in 2019.
