Michael Beasley - Athlete Ambassador
Have you always been into sport?
Yes, sport is a great way to participate not only as an individual but also a team to achieve specific goals or achievements. It’s a fantastic opportunity to put yourself out there and meet new members of a community and socialise. I’ve been in sport from a very young age playing cricket, football and rugby, and recently taking up cycling over the past year.
What is your proudest achievement?
My proudest achievement to date is being selected for a district cricket team, having the opportunity to play for a team selected from a wider community gave me a great sense of achievement. In my personal life would have to be the birth of my beautiful daughter Ella.
How do you overcome setbacks?
I find overcoming setbacks easy, you have to overcome them face on. At points in life things aren’t always going to go to plan and you’re not always going to be successful, whether that being in sport, work or your personal life. The best way to tackle a setback, a mistake or a failure is to learn from it. Go forward with a positive attitude and try and be better for it.
What advice do you wish you’d been given when you first started?
For myself in cycling would be not to rush.Build up the miles gradually over weeks or months and enjoy your rides. Don’t get too fixed into numbers.
What are your goals?
My goals for the upcoming season are to improve my cycling abilities through fitness and progress through the ranks in my local cycling club and start competing.
Who inspires you?
Alejandro Valverde, anybody who follows cycling would of heard of his name and his great achievements through his career. He also inspires me by how he’s still competing at the highest level at the great age of 41. This just shows that age is just a number and you can compete for as long as your body wants to.
Why work with Sundried?
First of all working with a company you need to look at their products and the quality of the products itself, there’s no point working with a company where you’re not going to enjoy what you wear. Sundried’s products are of an excellent quality and are products I would wear on a daily basis, whether that being cycle wear to gym wear. Before working with Sundried I looked through social media to find other ambassadors and I found that I had the same ambitions and vision which others had. This made me want to join the team and work with a great community.
