A strong climber who thrives on rolling time trials, Alice starting cycling 5 years ago following knee injuries which sidelined her from running. In her first 18 months of racing Alice picked up two national junior titles and quickly rose up the UK ranks. Whilst combining a full time degree with cycling Alice continued to learn and gain race experience both in the UK and France. With notable results including top 10s in UCI stage races as well as finishing 2nd overall in the National UK Road Series in 2016 Alice established herself as an up and coming climber.
Alice describes racing up Vontoux during the 2016 Tour de'Ardeche as one of her favorite cycling moments. She finished 13th on the stage, helping her team move into first in the team classification.
Now in her second season with Team TIBCO - Silicon Valley Bank, Alice is looking to continue to develop her talent.
// Q&A with Alice
What's a little known fact about you?
"I was given the nickname of ‘baby faced assassin’ by a former sports director."
Freedom. I just love riding and when I'm on the bike I feel completely liberated. I also love being part of a team - working together, learning from each other and sharing amazing experiences with great people.
What's your motivation?
I think all athletes have certain race goals and targets that drive them and I do too, however my intrinsic motivation is simply to be better than yesterday. I want to truly push myself and be satisfied that I've given my best in trying to pursue my goals.
The infamous 10 hills ride in Limoux!
Achieving 2 junior national titles and Tour de Ardeche 2016
Aside from my individual focuses (Gila and Plouay to name a few), I want to be the ultimate, reliable teammate and help our leaders as much as possible.
When not riding, I like to...:
Read! Pretty much anything and everything. From fiction to philosophy.

Favorite post-ride food:
Tuna and rice salad.
