Where is your favourite place in the world?

My favourite trip has been to Astana Kazatana. It was the most futuristic place I have ever been! Plus it was first trip with Cycling New Zealand to my first Junior Word championships. I have very fond memories of the campaign and made some of the most amazing friendships.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given ?

I don’t judge your worth by how good you are on the bike, I judge it by, who you are as a human.
