What made you keen to take part in the Mark Webber Challenge - and what sort of preparation have you been undertaking for it?
I've always wanted to do it, and I was given the opportunity to do it this year, which was a huge surprise to be honest. It's very similar to my normal training but just a bit extra volume to adapt to the long days out!
Is that additional or complementary to your usual racing fitness regime?
Definitely a bit of both, like I had to introduce kayaking into my program for example.
What do you think of multisport - what's your best discipline and your least favourite?
It's great, very, very challenging as there's always one discipline you just can't nail or feel 100% comfortable with. Either Mountain biking or running is my best and my least favourite was probably the kayaking, just feels like you put some much effort in for such little return with speed!!
The Mark Webber Challenge raises funds for the Whitelion youth charity and the Save the Tassie Devil Appeal. For more information on the event, visit www.markwebberchallenge.com.
