“I can’t imagine a life without my bikes.” When Britain’s Sally Bigham joined Team Topeak Ergon in 2009, she was already one of the most successful female riders from the island. In the meantime she has managed to become one of the best in the World, and often wins against the International Elite. This is illustrated with her second win at the 2012 Cape Epic in South Africa. One of the hardest races that there is.
For Sally fun and love of the sport come first. “By training hard and having the tenacity to carry on, the wins seem to come along on their own” the Marathon Specialist says. The list of wins underlines this. Despite her success, it is only since 2006 that Sally has been riding bikes. Her remarkable talent saw her become British Champion within two years, and so she remains at the head of the field.
