On the weekend of 19 & 20 October 2013 I will be competing in the second annual BATTLE OF THE BEASTS raising money for SOLDIER ON


Last year, with the generous donations if my supporters, I raised a massive $5'702 to help wounded Soldiers and their families.

Out of the 119 riders that attempted the race I raised more money than all of them combined, which is a testament to the generosity of my friends and family.


This year I will be competing in two events on the one weekend:
Saturday 19 October - THE FLOWING BEAST - 45km of MTB'ing taking in the easier sections on the Naas Valley; and
Sunday 20 October - THE BEAST - 72km of the ACT's most brutal and unforgiving terrain. Last year saw me, sweat, cry, swear at trees and finally vomit after I finished the race and collapsed into a heap on the ground.

2013 will not be an easy ride; but I'm fitter, faster and more determined to raise more money for SOLDIER ON


I've chosen to enter the event as an individual rather than in a team for a very simple reason...
I NEED your support to finish this epic weekend of mountain biking!

I need people to sponsor me on these rides to raise money for SOLDIER ON, a not-for-profit organisation that provides rehabilitation and support for wounded ADF members and their families.

As a ex-serving member who has deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan I've seen the toll injuries, both physically and mentally take on returned veterans and their families, so every dollar that is spent helping these people in need is greatly appreciated.I'm asking YOU to donate money (every donation helps) to support this fantastic cause while I sweat, bleed and cry my way across Namadgi National Park.

Later this year I will race in the 2013 Battle of the Beasts MTB enduro & try to top last year's amazing $5'702 raised to help wounded servicemen & servicemen.
Please take a minute to watch this video and share it with your friends. Every dollar donated helps those that have been injured serving Australia.
