    I think I have raced against her at a club crit at least once. Very strong. Probably would be world class if she’d started at 10 yrs old.

    SUPERB ATHLETE and inspirational person. Honoured to ride beside (well, behind) you Lisen!

  • Lee Turner

    The most down to earth and humble person too. Very classy. So thrilled for her and everyone at SKCC is very proud.

  • Did you hear the one about the anaesthetist who took up cycling and went full gas?

    • jules

      cycling is a lot like being looked after by an anesthetist. you drop $$$$ to participate in an activity they tell you is good for your health, you wear inappropriate clothing, it causes you to sleep through half the weekend and wake up in the afternoon feeling drowsy

    So exciting following Lisen’s progress and agree with others that she is one of the nicest people you will meet on a bunch ride.

    Wow. Awesome story. She sees like someone I’d like to ride with (if I could keep up).

  • Ellie

    What an awesome story! I am so inspired. Bravo!

  • Darren

    Lisen was phenomenal on the Bikestyle trip!

  • Robert Merkel

    Great story.

    But also a slightly frustrating one.

    It seems that much of Australia’s largest best female cycling talent doesn’t get on a bike until it’s too late to have a real shot at an overseas pro career.

    I don’t know whether Lisen would have wanted to turn pro, but it would be nice if we could collectively figure out a way to give more women the chance to find out their potential to do so earlier…

      It also again raises the issue of whether its appropriate for rider development opportunities to not cater for the older female athlete. We’ve seen so many incredible performances this year from those approaching and beyond 40.
