"Southern Spin thought it would take just a moment to list at least a dozen women bike riders that every Asia-Pacific sports fan who loves bike sports should know.

"“Olympics are addictive and they’re so few and far between. I’ve dedicated 18 years to the sport, I’ve had three opportunities to go to the Olympic Games and I know how special they are, how rare and unique they are, and what an opportunity it is to be there. That to me is addictive.”"
