….to name a few of her major results but if you read her bio on the Team GB site you’ll see she plays just as hard!
Think it’s all happening on Wed 14th so tune in and cheer her on.

And she did it! H1-3 time trial Gold despite having to put her chain back on part way through the 20km course.
Karen is also a past member of the GB TrailO team
