Greatest sporting achievement: Being a world champion in the Individual Pursuit. Also making the team for the London 2012 Paralympic Games, and hopefully after the Games I can say that I achieved all I wanted to achieve.

Greatest achievement off the field: Being a director for the wonderful organisation Cerebral Palsy Alliance.

Who is your sporting heroine? There are so many women I look up to. Frida Svensson (Swedish Rower) really inspires me and so does the wonderful Kate Bates (Aussie Cyclist).

How many hours per week to you train/exercise? My training varies a lot depending on what I want to achieve but I usually train around 20-30 hours a week.

What do you love about your sport? Racing and Winning!

If you could change something about your sport, what would it be? If I could change anything I would increase the number of females competing. We need more elite cyclists!

What motivates you? I am motivated by my family and friends. I don't need a lot of motivation to ride my bike, it is the best job in the world.

Do you have a profession outside of your sport? I am currently completing my mechanical engineering degree at UNSW. So hopefully I will be working within engineering when I finish.

Three words that describe you: happy, cycling mad

If I wanted to play your sport, what advice would you give me? Grab a bike and just give it a go!
