Louise is a phenomenal athlete, transferring into cycling from triple jump via the gold4glasgow programme and she sets PB’s with frightening regularity. Since joining the TORQ Track Team she has won multiple World, European and National Masters titles and medals, plus some notable wins at the Scottish National Track Championships, while also being a consistent competitor at the elite National Omnium series. In the past, Louise has shrugged off serious illness to race and still made the podium, so she is known to her teamies as Lou “Nails” Haston.
