Favourite Tri discipline: As an ex-international bike rider, it has to be cycling.

Least favourite Tri discipline: I'm not the quickest runner!

Worst race: Take your pick from any in 2011 - Injuries, mechanical problems and crashes galore.

Best bit of Tri kit: My Matrix tandem - great mix of alloy and carbon to give a light but strong bike...and it looks cool too!

Other sports: I used to play a bit of football, wheelchair basketball while at uni and had a go at cross country skiing once.

And after that: Drink beer!
