Forgettable Moment
Le Mans 1999 and breaking my leg on Day 4 of the 2008 Challenge

Favourite 2008 Mark Webber Challenge Moment
Mountain biking in Launceston on Day 3 of the 2008 Challenge; there was a fantastic mixture of technical and wide open trails. I was particularly proud of the 2008 event, as it's the best Challenge we've put together so far.

Best/ Worst Aspect of Job
Travel is tiring and constantly having to stay at hotels. Best aspect is probably the high performance requirements and being able to work with some very good and talented people.

Stress buster
Training, Reading sports books
