I made my return to professional racing at the weekend, and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Levels of pre-race anxiety were some of the worst I've ever felt in the week before hand but on race morning I just realised that I was happy to be back on the start line and anything else was a bonus. I had no idea how I was going to fair against the pros after the last 12 months. The preparation hasn’t been ideal.
Hi, I'm Ali. I like riding bikes and coaching people to achieve their athletic goals. I've been coaching for more than 10 years now and have never failed to make an athlete faster (I can't quite believe this myself either). I used to race bikes, triathlon and in 2014 I broke 9 vertebrae and my skull. Follow my journey here and on Twitter.
