What is your favourite TV show?
Ever since I was a little boy, I always watched How its Made. No idea why I just developed a weird love for engineering and mechanical things. Planes, cars, bikes … anything with wheels to be honest.
What is your favourite smell?
Simply, the smell of the countryside. Fresh air, flowers and trees. Nature, untouched.
Which of your scars has the best story behind it?
The scar left behind after I had my shoulder rebuilt. Was taken off during a crash on the track, hit the ground at 60kmh, practically turned my collar bone to dust. My shoulder is practically made from titanium now. Took six months to get back to fitness and regain the use of my left arm. Trained like my life depended on it and won my first race back after that crash … my second favourite race win and a moment in my life that still drives me forward today.
What food do you love that a lot of people might find a little unfamiliar?
I’m half Jamaican and half Scottish … take that as you will.
