Emma Pooley

UCI World Champion and Olympian

Emma is the only GCN presenter who didn’t ride a bike competitively as a child, and after an uncompromising start to her cycling career (being beaten in her first-time trial by someone wearing a gorilla suit), she overcame her lack of experience to race with some of the strongest professional women’s teams.

Emma is a former British National Time Trial Champion, UCI World Champion, Olympian, and Four-Time Long Distance Duathlon World Champion … and somehow Emma still found time to complete her PhD in Geotechnical Engineering at ETH Zurich.
