Ms Bradbury: British Cycling eRacing Champion!
Maths teacher Ms Rosamund Bradbury has been crowned British Cycling Women’s eRacing Champion after ten top female cyclists battled it out in the eRacing finals at the Olympic Park. This is the first time that British Cycling have run an eRace but it is anticipated that the event will now become an annual fixture and possibly an Olympic sport.
Ms Bradbury, a full-time maths teacher at Hampton, competed against a number of professional riders to qualify for the championships. A former GB rower, she took up cycling two years ago and has won a number of local and regional races but nothing on this scale before.
Many of her pupils watched the televised final and she has been inundated with congratulations by boys and colleagues alike. Ms Bradbury says she is delighted and amazed to have won the national final but has no plans to swap her teaching career for that of a professional cyclist:
eRacing is perfect for me because it fits into my life so well. After a day of teaching Maths, I will jump on my bike at home in the living room, do a short race and still have time for dinner and marking. As far as I am concerned this is the ideal life/work balance and is very rewarding and enjoyable.
