These things are really souring the Olympics for me…

What will be your goals on long term as a person and as a cyclist?
As a person? that’s a good question. If I know I will tell you. However, as an athlete to achieve the highest possible Olympic Champion, World Champion or a win in the Giro Donne! I have high ambitions so probably I won’t be satisfied that much.

How do you prepare for a new season?
Currently I prepare my season at home due to a broken right hand. So I can’t ride my bike outside and I am not able to run and swim. So for the moment my preparation includes the turbo and some gym exercises. In the second half of January I will be in Italy for training and in the beginning of February there will be the first team camp of Hitec.

***

Your idols are Lance Armstrong and Emma Pooley. Why Pooley??
Emma because I like the way she rides in the hills and mountains. She has strong attacks and solo rides to win races. And similar to me she started cycling late and reached the top very quickly.

What is Sylwia doing when not riding a bike?
During the season reading books, listening to music and car rides in the mountains. After the season on holiday with my husband, walking through the mountains and going out with friends.

It’s a lovely hour-long programme - check out the foggy climbs - and the web cobbles at the end that look like marble!
