// Q&A with Sharlotte 

 

Why cycling? 

The exercise, the challenge -- and the cool bikes we get to ride. 

What gets you out the door to train every day?

 

Definitely the challenge of training/preparation for races we compete in.

Favorite ride: 

 

Anywhere in the Port Hills in Christchurch for its scenic roads and the hills are extinct volcanoes so it’s a pretty interesting route!

 

Career highlight: 

 

Representing NZ at the Comm Games and finishing just off the podium in 4th spot.

 

2019 goals:  

 

Its my first year racing professionally so to have a consistent season is my main goal for this year.

 

When not riding, I like to...: 

 

Walk my dog and catch up with friends and family.

Favorite warmup song: 

 

Not sure… anything upbeat is a good start. 

Favorite post-ride food: 

 

Chocolate milkshake
