This season I’ve been fortunate to have had a lot of great races and without doubt it’s down to the team around me; from Dave Knight who coaches and guides me to my sponsors; Stratford Cycle Studio, Shires Physio and Everyone Active who are all so generous in their support. To wear the GB kit is an amazing feeling and I’m proud that so many of my fellow squad member competed and did so well and were a part of a fantastically organised event’.
