Location: Woking Town Centre Woking, Surrey
Event: 12 June 2012


“It feel amazing, it’s awesome. I didn’t really know what to expect this year as the races have been so much more attacking that I didn’t know how it was going to pan out but luckily it was how I liked it tonight”, said Lucy Garner after stepping onto the podium following her victory in Woking.

Twelve months ago Garner was also the winner on the night and has since risen through the ranks of riding, picking up the Junior World Championship on her road to success so far. But she still enjoys racing amongst her fellow Brits at home.

“I’ve missed racing in Colchester but been in the others and I am doing Stoke on Thursday.

“It’s been a busy year [since winning the Junior World Championships] with all the races but it’s good to get to race here in England as I have been doing quite a lot abroad so it’s always good to come back and win a race here.”

Enjoying the atmosphere around the town centre as she tackled the course, she said “the crowds were amazing; it’s always good when you go past the finish line and everyone is cheering. Hannah Barnes was doing a lot of the attacks during the race so I think you’ve just got to mark all the riders, you can’t let anyone go, especially in a course like this because once you get a gap it’s quite hard to bring it back.”

Garner is impressed with the growth in strength and depth of riding in the UK now and is delighted to be part of the Johnson Health Tech Grand Prix Series.

“I’d say that racing abroad is a lot more aggressive and there are a lot more riders but the racing has come on so much here in the last year that it’s really good and it’s great that we’re getting some publicity here too.”
