Have you ever had any racing disasters?
The ride London 2018, I had a puncture and it was raining. So I got very wet and I actually suffered with mild hypothermia. I had to stop and get help from St. John’s ambulance, after which I still finished the event.
How do you overcome setbacks?
I overcome my setbacks by reflecting on my accomplishments and the things I have achieved, remembering that it's a long journey and focus on what I can control.

There are two people that inspires me. Mark Cavendish the road cyclist and my friend Katy Parrott.
