Name: Louise Borthwick
Primary Club: Edinburgh RC
I live in Edinburgh and I’m in my final year at school. I started racing in mountain bike races back in 2009 but soon discovered road racing and decided it was for me. I also started racing the track around the same time and now I’m about to start my second year as a junior racing in those 2 disciplines. If you want to find out more I’ve got a blog at louiseborthwick.blogspot.co.uk

How do you celebrate/relax after a big event:
Try and meet up with my friends who I can’t see very often because I’m always away racing or training!
