London Bike Show 2019
Q&A: The Wyman Files
16:15 - 17:00 (Saturday)
Helen Wyman, the Queen of Cyclo-cross and Mud gets a gentle grilling from commentator Rebecca Charlton about her career highs and lows, the Helen 100, puppy love, long-term love and much more. Followed by questions from the audience.
Born in St Albans in 1981, Helen grew up in a cycling family and began racing aged 14. Trying all forms of cycling, Helen found her love of cyclocross aged 18, when the cross season fitted conveniently around her university studies in physiotherapy.
Rapidly finding success and international opportunities, she took up the sport full-time aged 23, having raced part time whilst working for the NHS following her graduation. Nine national championship and two European Championship wins were capped with a World Championship Bronze medal in 2014.
Helen has dedicated the past 14 years of her life to cyclocross, which have included four years as an active member of the UCI Cyclocross Commission where she has made significant progress for the sport towards equality for female riders. For Helen, these changes are as important an achievement as her on the bike results.
