Alice Sharpe is a recent convert to road racing having moved across from triathlon where she has enjoyed a great deal of success, including a top ten in last years Nationals.

First spotted by Sunsport Velo WRT team manager Tony Orrell at the Tameside Crits Alice was signed up to the Sunsport roster and has shown great promise in her first season on the road, culminating in her being crowned the British University Road Race Champion last month. She is currently racing for Sunsport in the Matrix Fitness Tour Series where a string of consistent finishes and a showing in the intermediate sprints has made her the teams main points winner by a long way.

Prior to the Stoke on Trent round of the Matrix Fitness Series we caught up with Alice for a quick q and a to find out who she is
