A family friend and Barbadian track cyclist, Barry Forde watched me win a gold medal at a National event. In 2013 I moved to the UK, and found John Wann to coach me. He specialises in training track racing. My school, Sherfield, offered scholarships for athletes and support and guidance
I train everyday on the bike on rollers or the turbo, for at least an hour, except for the days when I go to the gym. That's usually 2 to 3 times a week. On gym days, I just do 20 minutes on the rollers to spin my legs.
Training also involves racing track leagues. I do a track league on Tuesday depending on the season, it's on Monday in the summer. I do a road ride on Sunday. Obviously that changes depending on the weekend cycle of events and races, and what my coach and I set. I tran on average 8 hours a week.
As an Ambassador of PedalSure I am engaged in not just helping new cyclist take up the sport, but also making sure they do so safely! I also raced for Team PedalSure in the last Revolution Track Series and even won the Dash in Round 5.
