About Lydia

Lydia started riding at a young age before being encouraged to go to local circuit sessions. After a few years of dawdling, tumbles and regular A&E trips and giving all types of racing a go, she found a love for track cycling, riding each race with a permanent smile!

In her first year as a Youth A, Lydia entered the world of national circuit races, making progress and scoring her first top ten result. Lots of experience was gained throughout 2022 at omniums and circuits around the UK. These experiences further developed Lydia’s commitment to and passion for the track and she now can’t wait for another year and another chance at nationals.

“Another year, another chance at nationals and another chance to ride and race with my friends. Still a lot to learn and glad to have the support from JRC for another year of racing, and looking forward to seeing the season progress, and hopefully some national podiums.”
