“It was truly a ‘eureka’ moment. I had a bunch of friends that were vegan while I still ate meat and dairy. I have always been a bit of an environmentalist, walking or riding my bike instead of driving etc, and after talking with them for a bit, and realising how horribly my current habits affected the planet and animals, which I’ve always loved, I went vegan overnight"
Professional track-racing cyclist, winner of nine race victories, vegan throughout his cycling career.
“I feel that my vegan diet allows me to recover quicker than I would on a similar, meat based diet. I have more energy, and can get back on my feet quicker, and with less soreness after a particularly brutal workout.”
