Goals: In terms of individual goals I came 20th overall last year the National Women’s Road Series so next year to podium in a few races would be good and to race the series as part of a team rather than solo I think will bring added value to the competition. To race outside the UK in a UCI events is an exciting prospect to get an idea of the standard of the pro peloton and how more importantly the work ahead of me! I would like to get more involved in both track and time trial scenes next season, if not racing then certainly for training purposes, to improve my top end sprinting and base fitness. It would be good to target less races this year but really focus my training to specific demands for those key events rather than racing hard for most of the season. If I can gain enough BC points for elite status that would be an added bonus. If I can say this time next year I couldn’t have given anymore, that is all I can ask of myself.

For team goals I guess we will discuss those over our upcoming training camp and everyones goals will differ slightly so it’s just learning where I fit in for the grand scheme of things. Basically work hard as a team and the results will sort themselves out!

Strengths: Well this is a tough one, I’m an instinctive rider and try to read a race as it progresses, a skill I’m very much still developing. I do better at sprint finishes, descending and criteriums and I like working as part of a team it brings an added dimension to the race you don’t get from riding as an individual. Anything with high speeds is always fun!

About Elizabeth-Jane: Originally from Liverpool, now in Aldershot, Hampshire. Work full time as an Army Junior Doctor.

Why Podium Ambition? I’m really excited for the 2016 season with Podium Ambition, the team has a lot of talented riders but also some great role models for women’s cycling that I think will help my racing progress to the next level. I have been welcomed into the podium ambition family and when you feel valued it drives you to work harder than you normally would on your own. My aim is to turn the pedals faster than I have before and make sure I give as much back to team as I am physically able. Ambition is to Podium!
