What's your warm up song? 

I have a playlist that consists mainly of Armin Van Buuren. I love dance/trance music. 

What are you watching on TV / streaming right now?

Vikings! It's a bit intense but interesting.

Vegemite: do you keep in the fridge or pantry? 

Pantry, it's nicer to spread on toast!



Favourite other sport?

MotoGP! I love it! I've seen it live at Phillip Island and it's amazing how fast they go. My favourite rider is Pol Espargo whose motto is never give up. Love it. 



Do you have any tattoos? Tell us about them. 


Finish this: To play me in a movie of my life I’d want

Dakota Fanning, she is a great actress and blonde like me!


Who was your role model growing up?

I didn't have a role model. Instead I like to think I am a combination of many people that I admired. Cathy Freeman, Anna Meares, Leonardo DiCaprio.




Where do you see yourself in 10 years’ time?

Retired from cycling but still working within sport, somehow I would like to be involved in the MotoGP as I follow it quite intensely and I'm starting to sound like I know what I'm talking about! Haha



Are you a cat person or a dog person?

Dog person. Although my dog Effie died not too long ago to a snake bite. It broke my heart and I don't know that I could have another pet for sometime. I wear a necklace when I race now with the letter E on it. When I first got Effie I was an aspiring Olympian and her registered name was Paisley Lodge Olympia...she definitely helped me to reach my dream.
