Katy Curd 4X Womens

Years on the World Cup circuit? This will be my 6th year on the World Cup circuit, racing a mix of Downhill and 4X, focusing for the last 2 years solely on 4X

Do you ever wear lycra? No or not on its own anyway! I’m more of baggy shorts and jersey kinda girl

Flats or Clips? Both! I always race 4X in clips but I ride DH with both clips and flats depending on the track

What gets you dancing? Descent music and probably a couple of beers!

Favourite sportsperson? I guess I’ve never really looked up to anyone but I admire anyone who puts their heart and sole into training for their goals. I also admire all the top athletes that can and have stayed on the top of their game for years.

Ever tried haggis? Yes and liked it!

No. of Twitter followers? 1,038

Other sports? Anything on 2 wheels and if I get the chance snow boarding in the winter

Favourite TV show? One Tree Hill

How does it feel coming into the Fort William finish arena? Nothing beats it, especially when you’re on for a good result. So many people cheering you on and as excited for the racing as you are, it’s the one race that I look forward to the most every year because of the crowd and the atmosphere
