My most recent achievements are:

56.52 for a 25m TT
2nd category BCF holder
This year I'm happy to have obtained the silver medal in National 10M VTTA champs and be part of the winning national Team alongside Claire and Tony. I'm hoping to compete in the BBAR this year and to get a decent position in the National masters criterium and road race.
My greatest pride is being part of a fabulous team who have gone from strength to strength. We have had some amazing results this year in Manchester TTs.
