Cycling Discipline : Road and Time Trial

Did you do any sports before Cycling : I started running at the age of 9, doing cross country and 800m/1500m track racing at a national level.

How did you get into Cycling : Due to prolonged injuries I was forced to stop running altogether. I started cycling as part of my rehab for running, but quickly realised that my passion laidwithin cycling.

First competitive bike : My first bike was a yellow Giant Defy with shimanosora. Having a triple ring I thought that the more gears you had the cooler you were seen to be….. Turns out I still have a lot to learn with what is cool and what is not.

Favorite circuit/race : My favourite circuit has to be Otley Town Centre crit. The crowds are always amazing and the atmosphere is electric.

What is the hardest race you’ve ridden so far : The junior Road National Champs has to be the hardest race for me. I have never seen so many hills in one day.

Favourite training ride : My favorite training ride has to be up the Black Mountains (Hay Bluff), especially in the summer when the views are incredible.

Favorite/most inspiring Sports personality : Chrissie Wellington.

Any hobbies outside of Cycling ? : When I am not doing course work, I like to go out on the horses with my twin sister, or forcing my boyfriend to get a pair of walking boots on and going up a random hill with my sausage dog and Jack Russell.

Do you have any hero’s and have you met them : It is a bit cliché to say it, but I have to say my mum and dad. The amount of support I get from them is phenomenal.

Favorite band(s) Artist(s) I don’t want to write down a playlist, but I like Avicii, Clean Bandit and Gabrielle Aplin.

Likes : I love getting my onsie on when I am at home and like doing a bit of cooking in my spare time. Also I like watching a good comedy with nan’s home made baked bean pizza.

 I don’t have many dislikes, but the main things that I can’t stand are being unorganised and late, especially on race day.
