Injuries

Fractured collarbone in July 2017. (Instagram, 8 Jul 2017)


Reason: "I used to be a hill runner, but due to injuries I wasn’t able to run for a period of time, so began going out on club runs with Glasgow Wheelers in 2013 to maintain fitness. That winter I started going along to the velodrome and did my first race in 2014." (veloveritas.co.uk, 29 Nov 2017)
Ambition: Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. "My main focus would be the track, but I would like to race the road events too." (veloveritas.co.uk, 29 Nov 2017)
Additional information

COMMITMENT
Gave up being a vet to move to Manchester where British Cycling is based, to become a full-time cyclist as part of the Great Britain training program. "The vet stuff had been completely on the back burner. I miss it more than I thought I would and whenever any of my friends and family mention to me that they have a vet question, I'm like yes, fire away." (heraldscotland.com, 26 Nov 2017)


RELEGATION
Crossed the line first in the 10km scratch race at the Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup in Pruszkow, Poland, under the impression that she had secured her maiden gold medal. The commissaire deemed her to have ridden on the blue band, moving her from first to fourth and out of medal contention. (au.eurosport.com, 4 Nov 2017)
