Mark Trayner 

What is your nickname? 
Hollywood, although a few of the guys are suggesting ‘Tourrets’

Where do you work and what is your role? 
STAC Capital, Director

How long have you been cycling?
I’ve been road cycling for just over a year, thanks to Smiling for Smiddy.

What inspired you to sign up for a Smiling for Smiddy event and/or what keeps you coming back?
It’s a great cause; the mateship shared with a bunch of great people; and, to a lesser extent, it’s keeping me fit!

What does it mean to you to raise money for cancer research? 
As per that Smiddy email that went out, the interest in helping others who are, or may be, affected by cancer—like my Mum and other family members.

How do you plan to fundraise/what is your top fundraising idea or tip? 
I plan to squeeze people into feeling an obligation to donate, and we’ll be hosting a fundraising ball. 

What’s your favourite post-ride beverage? 
In the morning it’s peppermint tea, in the afternoon, a beer. 

Do you have any rituals or superstitions before you go for a ride? 
Can’t say I do!
