AREA OF EXPERTISE:
Practical man and a cool, calm head and beard. Great in a high viz vest, can fix anything. Support car driver. Hot water specialist. Extra muscle for lifting the heavy bikes. Only happy when moving. Wannabe cyclist.
EXPERIENCE IN # OF MILES COVERED WITH TJB:
Fairly recent addition to the team, having been swept away when having a leisurely evening at Joe’s with Alan, amazing what saying ‘yeah, ok, I’m up for that' can lead to... Helped with Joe’s record breaking End to End to End in November 17. Ever present since!
ENDURANCE RACING HAS TAUGHT ME:
An individual is nothing without a team, and the team are only there for the individual.
There is no ‘one-way’ to success, all teams do things differently but still achieve results.
MOST CHALLENGING MOMENT SO FAR:
Joe asking me to crew for the WUCA President at the inaugural Joe Barr 500 (did I mention we won it?).
BEST MOMENT SO FAR:
Direct following Joe at 2am climbing up out Enniskillen on the return leg of End to End to End. To see him close to breaking, 600+ miles in tough conditions, but just seeing him push on, watching the car speedo nudging 20mph uphill. Unbelievable and inspiring.
SIGNATURE PHRASE WHEN RACING:
"Yes, OK, I’ll do it"
