INTRODUCING ANNA PUCKRIDGE
“I got into cycling 6 years ago, initially for fitness, but then went mountain biking and instantly fell in love. First race was at Eagle Mountain Bike Park – in E grade. 2 laps I remember having to lay in bed for the rest of the day! Since then I have raced in XCO, XCM, Gravity Enduro and Cyclocross. I was fortunate enough to take out the CX National Championship 2016 and series in Masters 1. Recently I entered the 12hr Solo at the Dirty Weekend, and enjoy racing the CX club events” Anna says.
Anna has volunteered for many years at the Fat Tyre Festival and has had amazing feedback from all the women she has coached.
Anna will be taking Intermediate rides out to Bartagunyah on Saturday and for those willing to go into the back country she may just take you out there if you’re up to it. There will be an option to turn back with the other ride leaders or explore Bartagunyah more, the choice will be yours once you get to Bartagunyah…who knows you all might get stuck at the winery taste testing Rob and Christine’s Port!!!
Anna will compete in the GESA on Sunday but will be up for a girls ride on the Melrose trails around 2ish.
Thanks Anna – you bring so much inspiration to the cycling industry and good luck in the GESA series.
