Biography >
2011 was Emma’s second full season competing on the road.

He switched from athletics to cycling after being scouted by UK Sport through the talent identification programme ‘Girls 4 Gold’.

She then spent a year on the GB Olympic Development Programme transferring her potential that had been identified from lab results onto the road.

Emma deferred her place at University in order to commit to achieving her goals in cycling.

In 2011 she achieved top 10 results in UCI in Belgium and France and has recently signed a pro contract in America for the 2012 season.

Emma’s long term goal is to represent Great Britain or New Zealand in the 2016 Olympic Games.
