AKA: Cousin It
Home town: Waltham Abbey
Biking history: 10 years on road and 9 on track. 5 years on the dirt. Raced 2013 in No Limits Endurance 1000cc and won the championship with fellow instructor Simon Banting.
First racing hero: Rossi
Biggest Riding Influence: Watching the likes of Rossi and co doing things on a motorbike that seem impossible to us mere mortals.
Favourite Circuit: Cadwell Park and Portimao
Best Biking Moment: Either the day I finally cracking the 2.10 barrier at Cadwell or taking a customer out who was desperate to get his knee down, having him then come into the garage after his next session to show off his scraped knee sliders when he followed my tips on adapting his riding style. He was grinning from ear to ear.
