Being Inspired to do things is important and having people that inspire you is valuable. Over the years I have met, read about and raced against many people who inspire me. These are people that I hold in high self esteem and they range from:-
My Father and my Father-in-Law – For introducing me to the mountains and supporting me through my sport.
Tommy Goodwin – Endurance Cyclist from the 1930s (cycled a 75,000 miles in 1 year in 1939).
Nathan Fa’ave – Adventure Racer – World Champion and an Ambassador for the sport.
And countless others…
Not only strong athletes, but those who put something back.
