A Q&A with Jess

  • When and how did you get into cycling?

    I came into cycling quite late in life although I've always been very active. When I moved to back to Australia from the UK in 2013 I decided to give triathlon a go as a new challenge (yes I was one of those people.....) I only managed to complete one triathlon before knee injuries forced me to call time on my running career. But by then I'd already figured out that cycling was the best part of triathlon anyway, so I joined Sydney Cycling Club and started riding properly. At first just a bit, and then all the time. After doing a bit of structured training with the club, I decided to give racing a crack about 3 years ago and after finishing second in my very first criterium, I was hooked!

  • What is your favourite event?

    I love racing at Heffron Park but the NSW Team Time Trial Championships are probably the most fun event and we've had some good results the past couple of years.

  • What is your favourite long ride?

    I went to Bright for the first time last year and absolutely loved it - epic climbs, beautiful scenery and quiet roads. Another favourite place to ride is the area around Kangaroo Valley and Bowral.

  • Any other hobbies?

    Last year I decided to go back to uni to study Nutrition - something I've very passionate about - alongside my day job. Unfortunately that doesn't leave much time for other hobbies once I factor in cycling! I do love hiking and am also a bit of an AFL footy tragic.

  • Favourite park-up?

    You will often find me at the Spruce Goose in Centennial Park catching up with my clubbies. But for great food and views you can't go past The Boat House in Palm Beach.

  • What is your day job?

    I head up the digital marketing function across APAC for Hudson recruitment.

  • What was the appeal of joining the race team?

    I was already mates with quite a few of the guys in the team, so I knew that the culture of the team would be very friendly and supportive. I'll gain a lot from training & racing with them, but still have a laugh whilst doing it as no one takes themselves too seriously. The expertise Jo brings to the team from her years as a coach and access to the Turbo Studio's facilities is also what sets the team apart.
