Irishman from Roscrea, Co Tipperary. Started cycling in 1997. Started at Junior level for 2 years and then up to Senior level. I raced full-time for 4 years on sponsorship with Toyota. Best years of my life - I got to travel and see lots of pretty places. I stopped competitive/sponsorship racing due to an lower back (disk) injury at Senior/Cat 1 level. I guess that next step up to Pro was never mean't to be! After taking a few years out of the sport, I obviously put on lots of weight. I went from 10.5st human zebra with tan lines to around 15st. Basically a full-time athlete to a fat bastard! So in early 2013 I kicked the bucket and I started cycling to lose some weight and get some fitness back but since then my passion and love for cycling came back and I decided to start competitive cycling again. I'm nowhere near the level I was but slowly getting fitter and stronger each week. I guess no pain no gain. Back racing full-time now, travelling the Country with a half decent FTP back.
