Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I was born with a heart condition called a 'Patent Foramen Ovale' which is very common and usually goes unnoticed and doesnt generally affect those with it.
However, after collapsing at work one day doctors discovered my heart had become enlarged and thickened showing all the symptoms of 'Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy' which coupled with the PFO meant more blood was flowing through the centre of my heart rather than around it, as it should do.
After many procedures over the course of around 4 years and with the British Heart Foundations help I am now healthy again and able to carry on the sport of cycling I love so much, and this is why I am completing this charity challenge (again) combining my love of mountain biking and raising money for a charity close to my heart, pardon the pun :D
