How did you get this job? Applied for a road manager position got the job and went from that position to running the business

Responsible for: I do my best to ensure everyone has what they need to do their jobs properly, whether that’s the riders, mechanics or other staff they all deserve the best. We run a modest team however so I tend to be involved with all avenues of the business from testing bikes to completing tax returns, marketing strategies and even line choices on the racetrack.

Best bit of the job. Diversity and being part of such a close knit successful team

Worst bit? Being away from family during the summer….. the summer is too short in the UK!

Secret talent? Hold the team press up challenge record!

Secret vice? Flapjacks!
