Join them as they walk – in the wind, carefully down the steep rocks – the length of the track, chatting over the key points. We’re pretty sure you’ve never seen a track walk quite like this.

All that gym work, all that training and bike skills, all the bike set up and kit… and a huge amount of thought and preparation on top. The effort is not just physical.

    That was really good. Thanks for going to all of those spots. Super helpful to @1fishonabike as she campaigns for the British National Championship in 2023.
