Clarice started cycling as cross-training for rowing and as a means to get across London for those pesky 6am training sessions. When common sense finally kicked in, she hung up her oars and turned to cycling to satisfy her competitive streak. Doing 12 miles in her first 10 mile TT in December 2012 was clearly not the ideal start but by the end of 2013 had whittled her PB down to a fairly respectable 22.47 and a proper TT bike was on order.
In 2014, she came Top 10 in both National 50 and 100 mile championships and earned herself a spot on the All Time Fastest Riders List for 10 and 25 miles. Most recently, she celebrated her daughter’s 3 month ‘birthday’ by not coming last at the National Closed Circuit Championships.
Clarice is currently the UCI 35-39 Age Group World Hour Record holder, with a distance of 42.116km beating the previous distance by some 700 metres. So far, this season, Clarice has updated 3 of her 4 PBs and moved up into the Top 20 of the ‘All Time Fastest Riders’ list :o)
