I started racing in 2015 after joining my university cycling team. In 2017 I decided to take things more seriously, with an aim to do well in XC races. In 2017 I won 2 rounds of the HSBC National XC series, securing 2nd overall in expert category. 2018 will be my first season racing in elite. I am currently studying for a Masters in Musculoskeletal Ageing and Health at the University of Birmingham. It is sometimes challenging to balance training with a part time job and studying – but there is always time for something you love!
