“As the youngest member of the team I have been cycling in a Club for about 7 years. I love Cyclo cross and road racing and am hoping to start racing on the velodrome this year. Hilly courses are my forte! When I am not riding my bike I love Cross country running. RFDA is an amazing opportunity for me to ride, train and race with other girls that share my passion for cycling.”

AMY MOURNE

“I’m going to be riding for the RFDA youth team as a U16. I’ve been riding my bike since I was three and a half years old, and haven’t put it down since.

 

I started racing mountain bikes and cycle speedway, and from there I found road and track racing. I love all disciplines and I’m very happy that RFDA is helping me progress my racing on the road, track and mountain biking. I’m very much looking forward to the forthcoming season.”
