I started cycling with Kids Saturday Bike Club in September 2013 aged 8. My first race was an U10 cyclo-cross at Ilkley in October 2014 and I absolutely loved it. I also love circuit racing especially town centre races such as Barnsley and Doncaster. My dream is to eventually get a pro contract so I never have to have a proper job!
