Other sports

From the age of 11 to 21 he swam competitively and won silverware on the national stage. "I took swimming pretty seriously and really enjoyed the training. I really wanted to do well and if I'd had the opportunity to go to a Commonwealth Games as a swimmer, I would have jumped at it. But I was never good enough." (heraldscotland.com, 5 Nov 2017) Competes as a road cyclist for Ribble Cycling. (milngavieherald.co.uk, 29 Jan 2018; The Real Cycling Channel Youtube, 4 Feb 2018)


Reason: Began commuting to work on his bike and never looked back. (heraldscotland.com, 5 Nov 2017)
Ambition: Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. "I'm hoping to do possibly all the track events: individual pursuit, scratch race and points race. And the likelihood is there will be road race spots as well, for the time trial and the road race." (milngavieherald.co.uk, 16 Feb 2018)
Additional information

ON TRACK
At the end of the road season in 2017, decided to make the move to track. "When the road racing season came to an end, Scottish Cycling approached me and asked if I'd be interested in doing any track work. So, for the last 15 weeks or so, I've been giving it a shot."
