“If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead– Roald Dahl

Biggest win to date – Div 2 Women’s Orica Kermese 2017 but I actually think I was most stoked after winning C-grade at HDCC FNWC (“Friday Night World Championships”)

What inspired you to ride – Originally my coach Nick introduced me to how much fun you can have with a crew on bikes and where you can travel each day on 2 wheels
What racing obstacle have you overcome – All of it! Ha. I am starting to really enjoy hills… but it has taken a long time!
What motivates you to keep going – The people and mates
Favourite cheat meal – Sweet potatoes fries
Favourite healthy snack – Smashed avocado on sourdough with tomatoes
When you’re not cycling, what do you do for enjoyment – Coffee, beach & hanging out with my mini housemates + Disco (the Cavoodle)
Favourite cyclist – I have a few but I’m a huge fan of Chloe Hosking. I find her inspiring as she is not only an outstanding road sprinter but a really impressive decorated cyclist. She always seems to have a positive outlook.
Tip for young cyclists – Make sure above all else that it’s fun!
