June 24, 2015

New to cycling? Check out She Rides

Orica-AIS cyclist Emma Johnasson started bike riding on a ‘proper lady’s bike’, but these days finds herself on a Scott blazing a trail. In fact, 2015 alone has shown what Sweden’s National Road Race and Time Trial Champion is capable of, and Emma is showing every sign of going full gas right through this season.

Find out why Bright and Mt Beauty make for a perfect training ground for world-class cyclists... And the rest of us!

Away from racing we find out about Emma’s absolute hero, how she got into riding, her favourite place to visit, why she thinks she never had a nickname, and plenty more.
