In my spare time I rather enjoy being out and about on my mountain bike. Competing at a region level i’ve been fortunate enough to make the local news quite consistently over the past few months with my race successes.
Taking the Senior Female Champion win at Mud, Sweat and Gears was definitely the highlight of my 2017 summer season, and I’ve managed to continue this success at the Kings Lynn MTB 2017/18 Winter series.
A back to basics MTB winter race series for novices through to seasoned riders, the Kings Lynn MTB 2017/18 Winter series takes place across two counties, taking in some old favourites and fresh single track over four rounds.

Having had three successful races in the series already, I was keen to finish off the season with a race win at the fourth and final round which took place at Shouldham Warren. Starting on the front row with yet another good start I found herself battling for the race lead with fellow racer Alison Goss who pushed me all the way to the finish. Luckily my consistent pace allowed me to break free and ride into the arena to secure first place, and more excitingly another series champion win.

My ambition is to continue to train and race over the 2018 Mud, Sweat and Gears season with the aim (hopefully) to be faster and stronger to compete in the 2019 HSBC UK National Cross Country Series.
I’d best get training!
