My passion for competitive sport was nurtured from a young age playing handball and tennis, and my love for speed and adrenaline cultivated from my university days rock-climbing and white-water kayaking.
I picked up cycling in early 2011 after being introduced to crit-racing. It was the opportunity to rub shoulders with the stronger and more experienced women at the 2011 SKCC Club Criterium championships that inspired me to start training. Through the support of the SKCC Women’s Development Squad, I started road-racing and continued to learn and grow as a cyclist. In the later half of 2011, I took up track cycling and racing, and certainly enjoy the different challenges and elements that both these disciplines bring.
The adrenaline rush of descending a mountain, the competitive avenue that racing provides and the social bond that cyclists share, continues to develop my love for the sport.
