Lives: Disley, Stockport
Team: Matrix Fitness/ Prendas
I have been cycling for just 5 years now, and have achieved quite a lot during this period. 2010 has been my most sucessful year so far, gaining a win on the road, a bronze in the Junior National Pursuit, and also a National Title with Hannah Barnes in the Madison, amongst many other results. I am three times National Champion.
I currently work 1-3 days a week, and the rest of the time I class myself as a full time cyclist. I finished Cheadle and Marple Sixth Form College in July 2010 gaining a Distinction in Btec Sport and a C at A-Level in English Literature.
I started cycling after I became injured during my athletics and cross country days. I had a year and a half out of running, but then I wasnt able to run again because of my injury, so I did a taster session at the Manchester Velodrome, and I never looked back.
I compete in many different cycling disciplines such as: Road racing, track racing and time trials.
This season will be my 2nd year racing for Matrix Fitness Racing Academy.
