Stephen represented the Scottish Junior & Senior team. As junior winning the sprinters jersey against some of the best juniors in the world in the junior tour of Ireland. As senior he competed internationally successfully winning the Scottish championship, many local and national races.
As a young boy Johnny enjoyed riding his full suspension and hard tail mountain bikes. He enjoyed riding all the local trails and has been into cycling for along time. In recent years has become more Involved in road cycling, enjoying hammering the pedals round with the local fast men known as chain gangs. This to most is seen as hard if not harder than the racing at times with average speeds of anything between 23-26 mph.
Johnny's natural progression after getting the bug for road racing was to start competing in a few races. His first road race placing was 6th, His second race he was in good company with top amateurs and winner Professional Harry Tanfield, finishing a respectable 8th
His latest result was a victory in Middlesbrough and is wanting to keep progressing race by race.
Johnny loves keeping up to date with all the new innovations on all models of bikes and enjoys problem solving any technical bike issues.
