EVENT: The Flying Mullet
EVENT DATE: 03/11/2012

My country helped me achieve a goal - to be an Olympian cyclist. My trademark is my mullet. I want to give back to New Zealand by cutting my mullet to raise money for the Child Cancer Foundation.

I've been asked more than a few times if I would cut my hair for really good causes and some have asked just because they felt that I'd be doing the world a favour having one less mullet around. But this time it was different.

I got home from the Olympics and actually had a break from cycling. During this time I realised how much support I had received from people throughout New Zealand. I went down to my local cycling club in Timaru and got talking to Mark and Tim Leonard.

Tim is 15 and has successfully recovered from a brain tumour. He really gets into life, his attitude is super positive and he tries hard on the bike. I respect him for that. Mark, Tim's dad, and the wider family are also hard out. Mark gets involved in cycling and supports everything that is going.

About the same time PowerNet were talking to me about riding for them again in the PowerNet Tour of Southland that's on the 28 October - 3 November 2012. They said that they'd support me if I cut my hair and gave me time to think about it. I agreed to cut off my mullet if I could support the Child Cancer Foundation. Tim and his family speak so highly of the support that they received from the Child Cancer Foundation during thier cancer journey and so it seemed the right thing to do.

I know how important it is to have the support to help you find the courage, faith and strength to win the fight. It takes teamwork and funding. Life on a bike can be really hard but nowhere near as hard as the cancer journey.

Please help me to raise money to support children and thier families who are on the cancer journey. If you live in New Zealand your donation is tax deductible and a receipt will be issued.

Thanks so much for your support!
