How did you get into cycling?
I started cycling to rehabilitate myself from a back injury when I was a full time rower. My back took longer to heal than I thought and it turned out that I preferred cycling anyway!
Where do you train?
At the Olympic Park, Derby Arena velodrome and a fair amount on the rollers in my bedroom.
Winning gold in the sprint at the National Track Masters Champs after only having cycled for a few months.
Favourite cycling discipline
Track – I prefer the training for it. Much more time in the gym and other cross training and no miserable cold, wet road rides!
Anna Mears, as well as being an absolute track legend, she’s done some amazing things for charity.
Top tips for training
Train hard, fight easy… one I stole from my Army days.
