Greatest fear? Free falling. All humans are born with this fear. I cannot shake mine.
Superstitions? Pre-race nail painting. Can’t race without them done!
Biggest achievement? 2nd in the 25-29 AG at Kona.
Favourite cycling destination? Hills of Perth, the Darling Range is gruelling and spectacular.
Favourite song to work out to? ACDC Highway to Hell. Gets me going every time….because 9 times out of 10, when it comes on my play list, I genuinely feel like I am on the highway to hell.
Spirit animal? Lioness. Strong and fierce!
Good luck charm? I have raced in the same socks for the past 2 years. The pair that got me on the podium in Kona. I have, however, had some shoking results in them since… Nevertheless, if there is any luck left in them, I’ll take it!
One thing nobody knows? I’d make a terrible ballerina.
Never have I ever… Been done for drafting. Clean record and proud of it! I race hard and honest.
Best thing about having a Scicon bike bag? I can go straight from a race to the airport, pack my bike in the car park and check-in in no time at all. No fuss, no tools, reduces the stress of what can be a stressful situation.
