  • How has cycling developed during your stay here in Dubai?  
It has grown – so many new customers and new facility development
  • How does cycling in Dubai compare to your home country? 
I’m from a small town called Somerset West in South Africa where we have loads of great cycling routes through vineyards and over some really challenging climbs. Out here in Dubai it’s actually the complete opposite – it’s a desert and it’s flat. Might sound boring but to be honest it’s fantastic. There are designated cycling tracks making it competitive and safe for all the riders.

To ride in as many sand storms as possible.

I like long socks. It’s the in thing.

Chicken Biryani and a nice cold Pepsi.

Yes, since I was 15 years old!
