As the SKODA DSI Cycling Academy Principal, Sarah has the role of leading the Academy in the delivery of their activity for the #ThisIsOurTime campaign. SKODA have created the campaign to shine a light on the inequalities that women in cycling are still facing at all levels of the sport.
Sarah and the women of the SKODA DSI Cycling Academy are the leading ambassadors for this campaign, working alongside other women such as the J-1 team in France and the Internationelles. Both of these teams ride the entire route of the Tour de France one day ahead of the professional men. They ride to bring back a tour for the women.
Alongside this Sarah leads the academy to develop the riders within it to reach the professional peloton and their own personal best. The Academy is also an extended trial with Storey Racing and provides additional opportunities to develop young women in cycling, something that doesn’t happen as frequently in the women’s peloton as it does in the mens.
SKODA are supporting this new opportunity to ensure they lead by example in trying to close the gender gap in cycling.
