A Somerset girl, Petra started riding bikes when Noah was loading the Ark! She raced downhill for 15 years professionally, racing World Cups, European and World Championships before winning the ‘old girls’ Master’s World Championships three times. Lately, she has embraced lighter bikes, Lycra clothing and climbing. Petra has also for many years been a road and MTB Guide in the Swiss Alps as well as guiding clients on road routes all over the world. In her latest incarnation, Petra is dipping her toe into the crazy world of Ultra Endurance Gravel events.
