HOW DOES IT FEEL TO ACHIEVE YOUR DREAM?
It is definitely a change from normal life, with a lot more responsibilities. However my manager is extremely helpful and does everything to make our lives easier. He has created a really fun and encouraging environment.
For girls wanting to do something similar, make sure you accept any opportunities you are offered.
I had planned smaller races with local riders, so when I got an opportunity to ride for Team Illuminate I re-adjusted my year. I am so glad I did.
It is not an easy and privileged lifestyle. You have to relax into many different situations. Everything is changing and you are not in control of what you want to do. But you are doing the sport you love and are surrounded by like minded people in a very supportive environment.
It is likely I will come home at the end of August.
I am keen to get back to the Calder Stewart races and share my knowledge with the Mike Greer Homes Women’s team.
