Name: Anne Ewing
Primary Club: The Breast Cancer Care Cycling Team
Started cycling in 2008/9 following the British Cycling ‘Girls for Gold’ talent identification programme, joining the Scottish elite athlete program in May 2009. Raced on the mountain bike in that first season. Got my elite license and quickly discovered that I severely lacked the technical ability to race a mountain bike, so switched to the road. I was in my final year of university at the time, shortly after finals in June 2010 I started racing internationally in the Netherlands, Belgium and France. During the following 2 years I saw little outside a hospital as I completed my 2 year foundation programme as a junior doctor. Since August 2012 I’ve been getting cycling full time, and planning to continue much the same until July 2014.
Career highlights to date:
Represented Scotland in the road race at the Commonwealth Games, Delhi 2010
Represented Scotland in European Stage Races, 2010, 2011
Top 20 finish British Road race Nationals 2009
