Phil got into cycling via a Land’s End John O’Groats trip in 1997; he then graduated to the 1200km Paris-Brest-Paris Randonnée x 3 and London-Edinburgh-London x 3. He loves a smash up ride around Regents Park, London, or a tour in peerless Scotland – it’s just great to cycle. He started a bike shop in 2006 and sold it in 2014.
Shu had cycled approximately 2200 miles in 2014 before falling and breaking her collar bone. The experience of crewing for her was at times intense, nerve-wracking, fun, exhausting, but utterly worthwhile. This time the team are confident that she will succeed.
He’s looking forward to assisting Shu again in 2015. She is once again aiming to achieve something extraordinary in the company of some equally extraordinary people.
