Michael’s love of bikes and cycling started as soon as he learned to ride a bike at 4 years old.
It was 1993 when he competed for the first time, aged 11, coming dead last in a local Mountain bike Race (on a Raleigh Activator)! From that point onwards he has competed internationally in MTB racing, Road Racing, Triathlon and Duathlon and is the current British Duathlon Champion for the 40-45 age group.
Michael trained as a bike mechanic for his first job aged 17 and has been working on bikes ever since, although for a long time as a secondary role.
Michael qualified as a strength and conditioning coach and sports massage therapist in 2005 and put that together with his lifelong love of cycling to become one of the premier bikefitters in the South East of England.
