Ryedale Rumble welcomes our new Ambassador

The Ryedale Rumble team are delighted to welcome Abi Smith, ex Ryedale School pupil and member of the GB cycling team, to be our 2019 Ambassador. Abi’s on the Junior Girls Endurance team and is currently at Ripon School studying her A’Levels.

Abi’s only too pleased to help promote the Ryedale Rumble:

Thanks for having me – it’s a great opportunity to promote cycling in Yorkshire and women in cycling too, especially with the ‘One in a Million‘ British Cycling campaign happening at the moment.

I’m currently travelling back from Italy from the first of the Nations Cups Trofeo Binda events. I acted as a domestique, breaking the bunch up on the climb and delivering a leadout at the end. I rolled in 19th in the front group whilst our GB sprinter came 4th. It was great to watch the UCI Women’s World Tour race straight after too!

I’m back over Easter and really keen to promote the 2019 Ryedale Rumble. It’s a fabulous event – hopefully we can get loads of entries this year!

We’re looking forward to working with Abi in the run up to June 30th – also crossing our fingers there will be a gap in her racing schedule so she can join us on our big day!!
