Find out what it takes to be Britain’s number one female cross country mountain biker. The Insight Zone caught up with Team GB and Trek Factory Racing Team rider Annie Last in late May, at the Czech Republic round of the UCI World Cup in Nove Mesto. Twenty-three year Annie became the first British woman since the Sydney 2000 Games to qualify for the Olympics and lit up the Hadleigh Park race at London 2012 in front of a 20,000 strong home crowd. She led early on and finally finished an extremely credible 8th. Annie talks about how she got into competitive cycling, the challenges of being a woman in a male dominated sport and how she feels she’s still developing as an athlete.
