Well I think Katy might of been able to hear us in Rio with all the Yorkshire lasses screaming at their TV’s during her Olympic races. For someone who was so new to the sport she was very quickly becoming a household name, and looked to be on her way to a medal along with the rest of GB Track cycling team.
After just missing out on the chance for a Silver or Gold, the Bronze medal races were underway, and Katy showed amazing strength and tactical ability to win that medal. An absolutely amazing acheivement and we were all so proud of her.
Here is a video of Katy after winning her Bronze……
Once Katy returned to Yorkshire, as a club we were honoured to be invited to her welcome home party with the rest of her family, friends and home town. It was just brilliant to see her again and with her Bronze medal!!
After enjoying a well deserved holiday, Katy soon jetted off to Japan and has been travelling around the country gaining experience and racing for the last few months. We are pleased to report that she managed to win the majority of her races, and has had an amazing experience over there. We cant wait to catch up with her once she gets back and hear her many stories……this Girl definitely can!
