“My first attempt”

My heroes are Cyril Despres and Ewan Buchan. Cyril because meeting him in the Morocco desert inspired me to work towards entering the Dakar. Ewan because he was the first Scot to finish the Dakar.

I hope to be the second Scot to do so. This will be my first attempt at the Dakar. I’ve never been to South America so it will be a fantastic experience on all levels. Off road motorcycling in Scotland involves mostly mud, rain and swamps so I’m looking forward to the dunes of Atacama - perhaps less so when I get there.

I am 38, an intellectual property lawyer and I live in Edinburgh, Scotland. I work between Edinburgh and London and travel a lot. When not riding motorcycles I have started to enjoy tri-athlons and mountain biking. I am also studying for my private pilot’s licence.
