An honour to me named Female Road Cyclist of the Year at the Cycling Australia awards in Brisbane last night. The perfect way to cap off my best season to date and even better to have my two biggest supporters Mum and Dad there as well. I’m forever grateful to ‘my team’ who provide me with so much support to help me chase my dreams. Special mention to my family, partner, super coach @geno_bates , @mitchelton_scott , @australiancyclingteam , @cyclingaustralia , @nswinstituteofsport and my amazing teammates. I’m excited for what we can all achieve together in 2020 👊🏻 #oppy2019 #cyclingaustraliaawards #teamwork #roadcycling #award #humbled #proud #thanks
