I started cycling in September 2016 having previously been a varsity rower for the university of Birmingham. I raced as a private member over the 2016-17 season just to get a feel for racing. I went from fourth to second category over the course of that season gaining a top 20 in a National B time trial and numerous top 10’s at regional A. My hopes for next season are to gain my first category license with Strada and a top 10 in a National B race. I’m currently training to be a secondary school teacher so I have to balance this workload with training.
