Inside the Women’s World Tour – Amanda Spratt

The mind game: the constant battle between mind and body. People often talk about mental vs physical ability – I’m not one to put a percentage on it but I firmly believe that the mindset you can put yourself in can really affect what you are capable of physically.… read more

Amanda Spratt – 5 Top Tips to ride your bicycle

The alarm buzzes at 5:30am. Your eyes struggle to open but you still manage to roll out of bed and make your way to the kitchen where you ready yourself for your ride.

My mind plays images of the race over and over, as I try to piece together what happened.
