Born in St Albans, Hertfordshire, although having grown up in Norfolk, I took up cycling at a young age. Many summers were spent on cycling holidays around England and France before I finally took up racing at the age of 14 years old. Racing everything from grass track to road racing, mountain biking to cyclo-cross; I never really found my speciality until time constraints found it for me!
At 18 years old I returned to Hatfield to study physiotherapy at the University of Hertfordshire. Having to spend most of my summers on placements for my course I found I could actually train more in the winter and as such turned my attention to cyclo-cross. Instantly finding some success I loved the sport and couldnt imagine anything better.
After qualifying I worked at the Royal Preston Hospital in Preston for the next 2 years where I started road racing too. Since then I have followed my passion of cyclo-cross and have been the national champion 9 times and twice European Champion. Married to Stefan Wyman I now live in Rennes-Les-Bains, France, but spend most of CX season in Belgium where we have based ourselves simply for the convenience and accessibility to top quality racing.
For two weeks in July 2018, I’ll be hosting cycling touring groups at the exclusive Le Monastére hotel in Limoux, South West France. During the 2018 Tour de France, we will be riding on some the best roads in Europe in the Languedoc region, and give you the opportunity to ride on the 2018 Tour[…]
