“Hi everyone I’m Sally Watts, a former horse rider turned mountain biker. I only really got the bug for biking in 2016. I was studying, then lost my horse and needed a way to stay sane. Everyone in the house was going mad with me glued in front of the computer. I’ve always been an outside kinda gal and I was experiencing cabin fever in a big way! My husband Alex (another JMCer) encouraged me to take breaks and come out for rides, so I hopped on his old 26er and headed out for short loops. Before I knew it the loops were getting longer and I was contemplating competing. I entered my first MTB race that autumn and fluked a win in the rookie category. Things escalated when I got a shiny new bike bought for me and I now find myself in the position of robbing Alex of all his spares to fuel my racing days out 😉”
