Ok, let’s start. How has your progression been over the winter, we’ve seen you been pretty hard into farming? ?
– “My progression throughout winter was hard! I felt quite low after a great 2019 season for myself ? However I managed to get back my motivation, and since February I’ve improved loads! Even though I’m working long hours on the farm ??“.
That’s impressive. But, what’s up with Youtube, are you a real youtuber now? ?
– “Haha, I don’t know ?To start with I just liked to film myself and look back at my riding to help myself improve mentally and technically! But I’ve got a lot of support from my fans and followers which have driven me to do more “.
You can never disappoint the fans! You have a huge trials park basically in your garden. Is your trials park the best place to ride trials in the world? ?
– “In my opinion, it’s the best place to practice UCI trials for high level and my style, although there are many great and better trials parks in the world?“.
That’s an honest answer. Do you manage to keep the grind going with no races on the schedule? What motivates you? ?
– “I stay motivated by constantly believing in myself and my goals? As well as seeing other riders that are determined to progress and others that just love the sport of trials, this gives me a boost ?“.
You’re basically the true trials inspo guru! By the way, what’s up with your weightlifting at the moment, any progression? Do you notice any gainz on your sidehops? ?
– “My weightlifting has been quite varied over the last couple of weeks, as farm work has come first and I’ve struggled to find energy and time to complete my sessions. But my sidehops have improved with each riding session I have, which is very positive ??“.
