PROFILE

Educated in the UK, played Junior and Senior International Hockey for England & GB.  Raced Mountain Bikes Professionally and more recently taught skiing in the Alps.
On an MTB its called Col du Cou. The Col is on the border with Switzerland and France and I think it is the most stunning view in the world.  The climb is very technical and descent can be as hard or as easy as you want to make it. On a road bike it has to be Col du Finestre, its a road climb that is as close to a mountain bike climb that you will ever get. It is steep, long, rough and incredibly challenging. The views are breathtaking like the gradient! This ride is not for the faint hearted…
