Meet the Coaches
As an athlete currently riding in the women’s NRS series, but also having recently completed my Masters in High Performance Sport, I have a deep appreciation for what it takes to be a great athlete. There are so many pieces to the overall puzzle.
I’m one of five children so I’ve always been competitive but the adventures in my childhood are my favourite memories. It’s the combination of these two qualities that I’ve always chased in life. I started out as a runner, competed in triathlon for a few years then spent some time on the boards as a track cyclist before eventually settling in on the tar. In later years I moved to MTB’ing which is my number one passion, but I pursue a career on the road for the most part of the year in the U.S with team Hagens Berman Supermint.
