For me I love my Epic hardtail, it is my go to bike. I ride it everywhere & use it on long gravel grinds & single track. This bike is great value & out of all my bikes it has done the most kilometres, over 10,000 km in 14 months.

My 2017 Epic is a great bike for racing but I find it hard to say no to the hardtail, so the Blue Epic only comes out on special occasions. I also enjoy having 2 dual suspension bikes when in a 24 hour race.

The 29er Camber is a full beer & gear bike. Let the fun times roll, with the dropper post & 120 mm travel this bike is the one I turn to when I want to get some air & go a bit harder over the rough stuff.

But the 2018 Epic is my favourite, it can do anything the Camber can do & more. However this race machine only comes out on race day!

The next bike for me will be the Specialized Sequoia. The Sequoia is built for touring/bike packing which I’m keen to start doing but I would use it for a cyclo cross bike and a road bike. Three bikes in one, great value.

My goals for 2018 are to go better in marathon races, defend my Aussie champ category jersey and go for top 3 podium overall at the 24hr Nationals. Plus have a crack at a cross country triathlon.

Whatever you do, get a bike and enjoy the ride.

My bike is soon to be the S-Works Tarmac Disc – an absolute weapon – and also my Specialized Alias for time trialling.

Can’t go past the Prevail to protect my noggin everyday (especially in the warmer weather) and the Evade to keep me super-fast on the race course.

S-Works Trivents help with my slick transition times.

My goals for 2018 are big – I’ve been working towards qualifying for the Triathlon Age Group World Champs in the Gold Coast, always an honour to represent the country but especially on home soil! I’ll dabble in some winter racing to keep the legs and mind sharp over the base building and hope to really tackle some cycling racing next season. My biggest goal though – increasing the number of women on bikes out on the roads and trails, encouraging, pushing and inspiring each other every step (or pedal stroke!) of the way.
