Holly Harris is one of Australia’s best mountain bikers but more than holds her own on in road cycling events too.
Her success on the road circuit has been recognised with the cycling superstar recently signed to the Specialized women’s racing team for the National Road Series.
Some of Australia’s best female road racers form the Specialized team and Harris is eager to build on her already successful career with her teammates.
“It is awesome to have the support from all the other girls because there are some really incredible riders on the team,” she told The Armidale Express
“Just to be able to learn from them is a pretty big opportunity.”
Being part of the Specialized team also means more support with equipment as well.
“To have the mechanical and personal support at the races is really cool,” Harris said.
“Working a full-time job, training and doing all of that, it can get on top of you so anyone taking a bit of the load makes a really big difference.”
While she is committed to the road team, she isn’t giving away mountain biking and will aim to fit both in her busy schedule.
“Trying to do both because I love them both,” she said.
“It is very different though so I have a lot to learn on the road.”
