Born in Albi, France, “Sim” began racing as a junior rider in the United Kingdom.  Having initial positive results in the mountain bike arena, Sim decided to try his hand at road racing after two seasons of cyclo-cross racing.

In 2001, Sim moved back to his home country, and was picked up by AG2R Development Team Albi Velo Sport.  As a member of AG2R Sim assisted in bringing home team victories for riders like Christophe Dupouey, and Darren Lill.  Not just an excellent team worker, Sim’s strengths include climbing and Time Trials. The 2004 season brought Sim additional European racing experience with a few months spent racing around the European continent.
In 2005 Sim raced for Limoux Credit Agricole, based in France.  Sim frequently joined composite or “Selection” teams for different events outside France.  For the 2006, 2007 and 2008 seasons Sim has been a member of Elite French DN1 Bouygues Telecom development team and has helped the likes of Scott Lyttle finish 2nd overall and 1st Young rider in the 2.2 Tour of Cameroon, while also concentrating on his own results.  In 2006 Sim concentrated his efforts on finishing his final year of University while still riding in support of his teammates and working for Bikestyletours.com  Once freed of his educational obligations Sim was able to concentrate a little more on racing in 2007 and 2008, thus the results followed with the high point of the 2007 season being his win of the Midi Pyrenees Championship, giving him the coveted yellow and blue jersey to wear for a year.  In 2009 Sim raced for the Bouygues Telecom team for European races. From 2010 onward he signed for Equipe CMI and focused his attention on the continental circuit with UCI stage races, and a few smaller one days races to fill the gaps.  He excelled in riding in the support of others, being an integral part to the team’s success in overall wins and stage  wins.  He really came into his own with the addition of a few riders signing for the team from the Pro Tour ranks.  With a clear leader in the team, Sim’s skills came to the fore.  Other the years he accumulated a number of personal successes, claiming at least one race win a year, and also making the selection for the National Championships in which he has finished in the top 10 four times.

Fluent in 3 languages, but schooled in five, Sim is an English Major from the University Champollion Albi where he graduated in 2006.  Sim also gave lessons at the University in 2005.  Well spoken, outgoing and well versed in all aspects of cycling, Sim has spent some free time working as a coach for touring companies, and is currently involved in the planning and running of Bikestyletours, and CMItours trips and training camps in Italy, Spain and the Pyrenees, as well as guiding trips to the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, and Vuelta a Espana. 

Sim is also a publsihed writer and part time contributor to publications such as pezcyclingnews.com, with diary entries, instructional articles and event coverage.  Sim also has experience working as a Director Sportif, both in Europe and abroad.
