I started out as swimmer and until starting work with Andy, thought I was pretty good. Inspired by Sunday's watching my dad 'race' triathlons, I decided to give cycling and running a shot too. I went on to compete all over the world, racing in the pro field at Zurich 5150 and winning European Long Distance Champs. A generous local bike shop even offered to sponsor me. I now work for them.......
