About me

I am a second year junior from Yorkshire racing mainly on the road, but also cyclocross during the winter.

I got into cycling through my dad and have been riding since I was 8 years old. I love riding and enjoy long endurance rides and climbing. I had a great season last year with Liv Halo, we had the opportunity to race all over the country and also abroad. I loved racing abroad on some great courses, my favourite race was the Junior Tour of Flanders as it was a fast race with some tough cobbled sections. Last year I also spent two weeks riding in Switzerland in the mountains, probably my favourite country to ride in! Racing in the Women’s Elite National series was also a great experience, fast racing with the best in the country and I am looking forward to racing the national series again this year.

I have gained lots of experience from racing last year, through junior and elite races and I am really excited to be able to use that this year during the 2023 season to improve and build on my results. I love being part of the Liv Halo team and I am super excited to race with the Liv Halo girls again this year, and also very excited to race over here and on the continent!
