I was born in Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape.  Like most kids I started cycling when I got my first bike at probably age 4 or 5. At primary school I played a bit Rugby but loved cricket and later Hockey.  Going into secondary school Hockey stayed a favorite sport for a while. I had to give it up when I started focusing on cycling. 

My father was a very keen and competitive cyclist and introduced me to the sport encouraging me to try it out. At a young age I just cycled as I felt but at age 16 I started to focus on cycling as my only sport.  My first ride as a sponsored rider was with Momsen Bikes. After that I moved to Kargo Pro Mtb Team for three years. During this time I had some good results and was selected to represent South Africa at the World XCO Champs as a junior.

For 2018 I’ll be riding my bike full time while focusing on high profile events. I’m proud to still be representing Momsen Bikes in the colours of Team Imbuko Momsen Bikes Pro Cycling. Imbuko Wines co founder Theunis van Zyl is passionate about cycling (and wine) and I’m enjoying the synergy. This year I also have a team rider, Dylan Rebello. Together we will be tackling some of the toughest stage races, so be sure to keep an eye out for us as we give it our all this year 👊🏼
