Joining the GMF team again is a no brainer for me. The first time I did it, just me and 14 men it was a bit daunting, but we had an absolute ball. The camaraderie is amazing, but most importantly, I am blessed with my own healthy family and a successful life in sport, so I want to give something back.
I have high expectations and know that the ride will be well organised and successful. I also have no doubt that the physical challenges will also bring along collective highs and lows.
While I’ve been lucky enough to be involved in the elite of global cycling, I’m actually a grass roots kind of sportsperson and can’t wait to be involved with the team and bring home lots of funds for Hope house.
As team masseuse I will not forget my massage oil but am fearful of breaking my arm before I leave but dread the laundry.
