My Story


Born in St Albans in 1981, I grew up in a cycling family and began racing aged 14.  Trying all forms of cycling I found my love of cyclocross aged 18, when the cross season fitted conveniently around my university studies in physiotherapy. 


Rapidly finding success and international opportunities I took up the sport full-time aged 23, having raced part time whilst working for the NHS following my graduation.  Ten national championship  and two European Championship wins were capped with a World Championship Bronze medal in 2014. 


I has dedicated the 16 years of my life to racing cyclocross, and also many years to making progress for the sport towards equality for female riders.  This included 4 years on the UCI cyclocross commission. These changes are as important to me as any achievement on the bike.
