Meet Your Child's Top-Rated Camp Director
Riding since the age of 3, I started racing Mountain Bikes at the age of 12 and have been racing for the last 27 years in Mountain Biking, Road racing, Adventure Racing, Triathlon/ Duathlon and Orienteering. With National Championship and National Series category wins, I love to compete, and love helping others achieve their best in sport. Being able to do this through our business BIKE and FITNESS is extremely satisfying and I look forward to working with Sports Camps Australia.
