Q & A

Greatest sporting achievement: 1st at the World Cup in Pra Loup in 2012

Greatest achievement off the field: Completing my Bachelor of Environmental Science degree.

Who is your sporting heroine? Caroline Buchanan

How many hours per week do you train/exercise? Approx. 20 hours per week.

What do you love about your sport? I love the personal satisfaction you get from succeeding in Trials because it is such a tough sport physically and mentally. It’s also a plus that the general balance needed to ride Trials carries over to so many other sports. For example, the balance I have gained from Trials has helped me ride motocross, wakeboard, snowboard and mountain bike.

If you could change something about your sport, what would it be? Greater support for female Trials in both Australia and Europe and for Trials to finally become an Olympic sport!

What motivates you? Definitely the rainbow jersey! But also the drive to continually improve my own riding level to close the gap between the level of the woman and the men.

Do you have a profession outside of your sport? I’m an environmental scientist.

Three words that describe you: Hard working, competitive and motivated.

If I wanted to play your sport, what advice would you give me? Be patient and train hard. The more you put in, the more you will get back.
