Cycling was always in Joss Lowden’s blood, she just didn’t realise it at first.
While her family were keen cyclists, Lowden always saw the sport as nothing more than a bit of fun and focused on running until she joined her dad’s club, Lewes Wanderers, and went on a training camp.
Hooked by the competitive thrill of racing, along with the many destinations it allowed her to explore, Lowden showed her potential as part of the British six that claimed bronze at the 2019 UCI World Championships in Yorkshire in the team trial mixed relay.
But her most impressive feat to date came in 2021 when she broke cycling’s hour record for women, posting a distance of 48.405km in Grenchen Velodrome, Switzerland.
The 35-year-old’s 60-minute ride beat Italian Vittoria Bussi’s 2018 record by 398m.
She finished 28th in the Women's Road Race at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
