A few dedicated Dirt Divas have grouped together to form a Race Team, here you can read the members profiles...

We will be taking part in various races throughout the year including the Gorrick XC Spring Series as well as some enduro events. We will share with you our stories of the races and events by means of regular updates on our news page.

My first ever Gorrick XC race was back in October 1995, all I can remember was being very concerned about not getting lost on the course, then somehow I ended up winning the novice category and I was hooked! My focus has now moved toward enduro events, I知 still keen to add some more podium places to the collection.

When I'm not on my mountain bike...
You can find me chilling out on a deserted beach somewhere, come rain or shine.

After many years racing sailing dinghies I discovered mountain biking in 2010. I was only looking for a way to keep fit, but cycling has now become my life! Always looking for new challenges, I discovered the excitement of XC racing last year. I知 looking forward to being part of the team, increasing my confidence on the bike and hopefully getting a lot quicker too!

When I'm not on my mountain bike...
You will find me out on my road bike.

My first introduction to mountain biking was actually a second date with my husband and now a few years later I知 completely addictedto mountain biking that is! I attended a Back to Basics course in 2007 and haven't looked back since. I致e gone from riding once a fortnight to 2 or 3 times a week. Pirbright and Swinley are my local haunts but Peaslake is a real treat (other than Afan). The Stilletos on Wheels event in September 2012 was my first experience at racing and I loved it. I知 looking forward to more racing this year.

When I'm not on my mountain bike...
I知 looking after my two young boys and encouraging them on their balance bikes.

As an ex-rower, mountain biking seemed like an attractive prospect, mainly because I thought it would be dry! I joined the Dirt Divas race team back in 2009 and was proud to win the Gorrick Series Open category that year. Since then I've had a back operation and a brief comeback including some cyclocross with a couple of podiums, all before having my son in 2011 and another in 2013! I hope to return to more regular racing with the Dirt Divas before too long.

When I'm not on my mountain bike...
You can find me either out running with my crazy dog, on my road bike or eating lots of pies.
