Something people might not know about me:    

I love motorsport and classic cars; a passion that I think I probably inherited from my old man, who spent much of his youth in the shed resurrecting collectable cars that would have otherwise been destined from the grave. I restored my first car (Ford Cortina, 250 crossflow, 4-speed manual) when I was 17 years old and over a 5-year period during my University years, I spent my holidays restoring my ’67 Ford Mustang Fastback, that made its debut on my wedding day. Although I love the people and the culture that surrounds cycling, deep down, I guess, I am also a bit of a bogan.
