My first year of racing has been as mentally challenging as physically, there is so much to learn about racing when you start out, but I’ve learned fast and had an amazing end of season, winning the National XC Marathon Champs and getting to represent GB at the XC Marathon Worlds (where an unfortunate puncture hindered my result), but none the less finishing the season on a high coming 5th in the UCI Marathon Series Event Extreme Sur Loue.
Over the year I have struggled to remember everything to do before, during and after a race, and have slowly refined my methods to find what works for me. During which it didn’t take me long to realise that TORQ was the brand providing everything I needed and all the research to back up their claims. Coming from a scientific background, reading all their research gives me the confidence in what I’m putting into my body and the knowledge of how to use it best. I’m super excited to have their support into next season to help me realise my goals both at home and abroad, especially in such an important season where everything is culminating in a home turf Worlds.
