Proud moment

I suppose my proudest moment was completing the Etape du Tour a few months after buying a bike.

Most memorable day

My most memorable day was Inferno Day in Switzerland. The perfect combination of abject terror, the rush of adrenaline launching myself off the mountain and the utter exhilaration at completing the race. Followed by drinks in the beautiful village of Murren, and a long night of laughter, fun and dancing with friends!
