Off the Front: Helen Wyman, Liz Cornish
Elizabeth Emery talks to British Cyclocross racer Helen Wyman and bike advocate Liz Cornish. Helen is 9 times National Cyclocross Champion, two-time European Champion, and a World Championship medalist. She is also a superstar in women’s cyclocross advocacy. Many of the positive changes over the past few years — pay equality, race length, tv coverage — is due to her work as part of the UCI Cyclocross commission. Elizabeth caught up with her in Iowa where she was training in the heat between the first two World Cups of the season – Jinglecross World Cup in Iowa City and Trek Waterloo World Cup in Waterloo, Wisconsin. They discussed her training & racing, the upcoming cyclocross season, working with sponsors, and work towards equality in cyclocross.
