‘I’ve just taken up en­duro rid­ing’

Howard Carter, 52, Shore­ham

My wife thinks I’m hav­ing some sort of mid-life cri­sis but the truth is I’ve al­ways liked to push my­self. I’ve en­joyed wind­surf­ing and road cy­cling all my life and af­ter talk­ing to a lo­cal friend who races, I re­ally fan­cied giv­ing en­duro a go, too. It’s men­tally and phys­i­cally very tough (dare I say even tougher than the cy­cle rac­ing I com­pete in) but it’s also very en­joy­able, and hugely re­ward­ing. You have to re­ally con­cen­trate hard on your cho­sen route through the ter­rain. I love it. It gives me the big­gest buzz out of all the sports I un­der­take and to learn some­thing com­pletely new at the age of 52 is just bril­liant!

Howard started en­duro aged 52
