Is the first time you have had support from the Dave Rayner Fund?

This will be my 2nd year supported by the Dave Rayner fund.

What is your cycling history?

I come from a cycling family starting with my grandparents racing. My dad was a professional cyclist so I've been brought up with cycling all my life. I started racing as a 2nd year U16 in RST racing team, then got picked up by Matrix Fitness and spent 3.5 years with them before joining my current team Servetto Footon. I represented GB at the 2012 Junior World RR Championships and even more recently at the 2015 World Championships in Richmond, USA part of the team supporting Lizzie Armitstead to gold!

What team are you joining?

I will be part of the Servetto Footon UCI women's team. I joined the team in June 2015 and renewed my contract for 2016.

What is your race programme looking like?

I don't currently have my race calendar.
