KATY WINTON

PETE TRIES TO CATCH UP WITH THE SPEEDY SCOT TO TALK ABOUT THE HIGHS OF PRORACING, AND THE DARK DAY WHEN SHE TRIED TO CALL IT QUITS ON MOUNTAIN BIKING.

With the 2017 race season fast approaching, Tweed Valley resident Katy Winton looks set to have an amazing year of riding bicycles. From a humble privateer landing a top ten EWS overall spot, Katy joined arguably the most star-studded factory team out there for 2016. Now a year more settled into the Trek Factory Racing outfit with some very capable teammates, a year wiser and faster, and a winter ironing out the inconsistencies, 2017 should see the number ‘6’ board tumble into smaller figures. Katy sits as the UK’s highestranked woman in the Enduro World Series, despite admitting that, by her standards, she had a lacklustre second half to the season.

For anybody who’s had the chance to chat to the only Trek lady to be racing every EWS round, they will know the smile or laugh that seems permanently etched on Katy’s face. Bikes are far from just a pastime – more a dietary requirement that sees this excitable lass shunning coffee as an unnecessary stimulant when bikes are in good supply. The future is bright indeed for Katy Winton. A wicked turn of speed, a true love of going fast on bikes, and a professional approach to both life on and off the bike that’s well ahead of her young years is a solid foundation for success.
