Introduction This year, 2016 I am returning for my second season to race for Team TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank, a professional women's cycling team based in the Bay Area, California USA. I have been cycling since 2005, initially beginning the sport through x-country running - then got into triathlon through this. I wasn't a huge fan of the swim so ditched the tri for just the bike and haven't looked back since. I spent part of 2010 racing in Holland for Dutch womens team, Swaboladies and from 2011 through to 2012 I was US based racing for Vanderkitten USA. From 2013-14 I was predominantly in Europe with the Wiggle Honda cycling team and had a great few years there developing as a rider and learning from some top class bike riders. In between overseas stints I return home to NZ to spend time with family and catch up with friends. I have recently graduated with a Bachelor of Business Studies, major in Marketing via Massey university (NZ) which I am proud and relieved to have completed while continuing to live my dream as an athlete. This year we will be participating in the Women's World Tour between Europe and the United States. Bring it on!
