Q&A with Jenelle: 


Why cycling?:


I love how cycling can be so many things, social, competitive, challenging, fun, and a way to be free...

What's your motivation/inspiration (especially on a tough weather day)? 


Knowing that I’ll be a step closer to achieving my goals, and the satisfaction of getting home from a really tough ride!

Favorite ride:

 

Springbrook on the Gold Coast, or anywhere riding with good friends. 
 

Career highlight:


Winning two U23 general classifications in 2015, in my second time racing in Europe. I really surprised myself and it helped kick start my riding even further. 

2020 goals:


To transition smoothly back into the pro peloton after having 2019 at home! Also focus on getting some good individual and team results. 

When not riding, I like to...:

I enjoy going to the beach! Going to Pilates class with mum, or simply spending time with friends and family.


Favorite warmup song:


Depends on my mood, can be anything from ABBA – Taylor Swift 

Favorite post-ride food:


Nice big Sandwich and a smoothie
 

Any advice to future / aspiring cyclists?


Always make sure you’re enjoying yourself!
 

Little known fact...:


I have a black belt in Taekwondo.
