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.

A post by Stefan Wyman Funding in cycling is hard. I know that, and in women’s cycling it’s especially hard. I think all disciplines in women’s racing are suffering, but I want to put a little perspective on value. Now to qualify what I’m going to say, I wish Cannondale-Drapac huge luck with their crowdfunding.[…]
