Discipline: Road, Cyclocross
Competition Level: Senior Women
Bikes: Road Bike - Giant Propel Advanced Pro 1, Cyclocross Bike - Giant TCX SLR 2
Why I chose the Propel: Focusing on Criteriums and Road Races this season, I needed a bike which was fast and aggressive. The Propel Advanced Pro 1 jumped out straight away, the black and orange paintwork is a real head turner and the carbon SLR 1 aero wheelset finishes off this aerodyamic racing machine. The bike also comes with a full Ultegra 22 speed groupset which is smooth and reliable, especially when those quick gear changes are needed when racing.
With only three years racing under her belt Danni is relatively new to the cycling scene. However, in such a short time she has learned a lot and is keen to compete in as many disciplines as possible.
Competing in time trials, in her first year of racing Danni broke the 10, 15 and 25mile senior female club records and soon went on to win the West Wales TT championships and placed third in the Welsh National 10mile TT. Last year Danni decided to turn her hand to cyclocross, to improve her base fitness for the 2016 season. She placed third overall in the Welsh Cyclocross league as well as placing third in the Welsh Nationals.
This year Danni is focusing on Criteriums and Cyclocross to build up British Cycling Points.

2016 has been a busy year for me - from moving house twice, starting a new job, Las Vegas, illness and injury. Looking back, I was surprised I fitted in as many races and events as I did. Now, I’ll look back at some of my most memorable moments on a bike.
I’m always looking for new events to enter, and what a great one to start the winter season with. Tide 2 Tide is a unique 6 hour off-road event where you’re aiming to ride as many laps as possible between low tide and high tide. You can either ride as a solo, or as we decided as a Mixed Trio Relay Team.
Aberystwyth was taken over by all types of cyclists on the last weekend of May. Criterium racing on the Friday, which saw the Tour Series Pro televised; Downhill Mountain biking on the Saturday where DH World Champion Rachel Atherton turned up to Conquer ‘The Cliff’ .
