Jill started her adventure race career on a Christmas present mountain bike and with an entry into the rearranged Sutton Bank open 5. Needless to say after learning to ride/skate on ice, that career was nearly very nearly over in less than 5 hours! Perseverance, a few more open 5’s and too many tumbles to count, she still is pretty ropey on a bike, but made it her mission in 2012 to complete the Swift and the Sting as part of Team Sardine, then the C2C in 2013.
The Itera was too much of a temptation, and due to the other sardines having different priorities this year, she has joined TeamFans to give it a go! Known as “the navigating tortoise” on the recent LAMM at the back of the field, she is built for endurance not speed! May be slow, but she will get there and ALWAYS with a smile on her face!
