January 8, 1996
I am a first year elite cyclist from South Africa. I have been cycling for 9 years in total and racing competitively for 7 of those years. I have competed at the highest level of the sport in the u23 category when I represented South Africa at the 2018 World Championships in Innsbruck, Austria. I have raced all over Europe and have done 2 full seasons abroad while based in Italy. I believe that my biggest attribute as a professional cyclist is that I am a team player. I am ambitious, motivated and dedicated towards my cycling dream.
I have raced as a UCI Continental Cyclist for the past 2 years. In that time I have raced some of the most prestigious races in the European and African calendar. I raced as a “stagierre” for the Dimension Data for Qhubeka World Tour Team.
My hobbies include the outdoors. I love a good hike or time outside without necessarily having a plan. Just enjoying good company and appreciating what I have and who I have around me.
My goal is pretty simple but to achieve it is going to be super tough. My goal is to become a professional cyclist for a professional Continental team or a World Tour team. From this and achieving this goal – I want to race in the biggest races around the world. I want to become a cyclist who doesn’t just make up the numbers but a cyclist who competes at the highest level and who can win some of the most prestigious events world wide
