Lauren started out in sports as a club swimmer where between the ages of 11-14 she was training under the national development squad. As a result of the squad, she did qualify for the national championships but unfortunately at the time was unable to take part in them, as she had managed to become over-trained and contract glandular fever.
In addition to competing with the squad and racing at club level Lauren also ran at a local athletics club. However by the time she reached senior school she had to make a choice between athletics or swimming nationally in the development squad. Lauren changed direction after ill, and she starting doing events such as aquathlon and triathlon. The change in direction brought around a couple of successes regionally, landing her a fifth ranked spot nationally during her time as a youth athlete. As time carried on Lauren dabbled in a bit of cycling, gaining herself a Junior Women Silver at the British National Cyclo-Cross Championships in 2010 - a discipline she had never even heard of a year beforehand!
Lauren started her first full competitive season of road cycling in 2011 under a sponsored women’s section of Abergavenny Road Club. This was a very successful year for her, narrowly missing out of the top 10 of a lot of the British national races. Lauren went on to win a national race in Ireland and be picked to represent Ireland at the Ras na m'Ban. However 2012 and 2013 turned out to be more turbulent, she gaining lots of experience along the way. Lauren stayed with Abergavenny Road Club in 2012 before moving to Southern Wisconsin in the USA for 4 months racing with the amateur womens outfit of ISCorp Cycling pb Intelligentsia Coffee. 2014 will see Lauren return to UK racing for a full season, riding under the guidance of 3x Olympic Gold Medallist and newly crowned World Masters Track Champion, Barney Storey MBE. Heading the Madison Boot Out Breast Cancer Womens Cycling Team will be Dame Sarah Storey, a multi-sport and multi-winning athlete in her own right. Before racing with the exceptionally talented team next year she has a week long training camp planned in Lanzarote.
“This training camp will give me a break from the no doubt, bleak and cold winter ahead!”
