Evie Richards is the first-ever under-23 women's cyclo-cross world champion, winning rainbow stripes in her first international cyclo-cross event in January. The multi-talented teenager turns her attention to mountain biking this weekend at the UCI Junior MTB Series in Switzerland. Here's her profile.
What kind of riding do you do?
I started mountain biking about three years ago, but last year I began racing cyclo-cross and last month I raced my first road-race
What do you enjoy most about cycling?
There are so many things I love about riding, but it must be between the amazing friends and family I ride my bike with, or where my bike takes me. I am very lucky to see some of the most beautiful locations in the world.
What’s your favourite ride?
When I am at home in Malvern, I have a favourite mountain bike route, which is out from my house and over every hill. Nothing will ever beat this ride! It's so peaceful and the best way to escape on your bike.
What’s your top cycling tip to share?
Always enjoy riding. As long as you are having fun, everything else should fall perfectly into place.
If you had a tandem, who would you like to ride it with?
I would ride with Michael McIntyre as he would make me laugh a lot when riding! I think he would also enjoy a cafe ride and it would be a bonus for me, as he's not a professional bike rider so it would be great extra training for me!
