This is pizza boy Nesta. Yes, an actual pizza boy. The best dressed pizza boy I've ever seen in fact (he came straight from school to meet me). When I put a message out asking who could benefit from these bikes, Nesta got in touch saying he was trying to save money for cycling by working as a pizza boy for the last year in between school and training. That pretty much said it all for me really. I've been there and done that sort graft to fund cycling and it's tiring when you add in studies, training and a healthy social life, not to mention the much needed time to actually do nothing and chill. So now Nesta has got my old cross bikes for as long as he needs them to race on. One of the deciding factor in choosing nesta to rag these bikes around was because he said he is going to lend his old cross bike to a younger rider who can benefit from it too. Basically, the end result is there's a few more young people racing bicycles this weekend. Wicked! Straight up competing in cycling is crazy expensive and is for the privileged. I wouldn't have been able to race without countless people helping me out more than i could ever repay (more on that in the comments below). I'm just stoked I'm finally in a position where I can start to do the same and give something back, which a lot of that is due to the support I get from @iamspecialized and @specialized_uk now. So cheers crew! A Massive thanks to the guys at Seabass Cycles for giving up some time to get these bikes race ready. I use these guys too often, they're wicked mechanics who have got a great shop, especially if you're after something with some character. (Check the old frames and builds in the back ground) A huge big up to Drew at Spin wheels for donating and old pair of team wheels to complete the two set ups for Nesta to race the national trophy this weekend. They're top quality wheels which have been ridden at an international pro level. It's so sick to have guys like you putting in your own time and expense to the sport, so thank you! If you see Nesta about racing, including at these weeks national trophy, give him a shout!

    Having things given to me by more experienced riders that I had just met when I first started was a huge part of falling in love with cycling, it feels great getting to pass things on to the even younger or newer riders now that I've been around a bit too
