Love the Girona pro women cycling club!
CTC is the cycling organisation with the largest percentage of women members at 25 per cent and many CTC member groups already do great work encouraging women to ride – for example, the inspirational Fabulous Ladies of Chester – and our staff run inspirational activities for women cyclists across the UK.
So although it’s the very first time that CTC is sponsoring a women’s racing team in our 134 years as a national cycling organisation, the move clearly links up with our work past and present. With the invaluable support of our co-sponsors, we decided to launch Team CTC to highlight this work."
Who would win a sprint between me and Kirsten? That’s a very interesting question and I’m tempted to try it out. If it was one against one from low speed I’m quite sure she’d give me a run for my money as she’s very powerful. Her maximum power output is higher than mine so I’d have to win on top speed or aerodynamics. In a short sprint from low speed I wouldn’t put too much money on myself.
If it was at the end of a race I’d be pretty confident because endurance would play a big part. But I can’t deny I’d be a bit scared to lose if I’d had to sprint her for a victory."
