Elite Cyclist Tanya Travels in Style in the New Ford Fiesta
We were pleased to recently hand over a brand new Ford Fiesta Zetec to Tanya Griffiths, who is signed with one of the top UK professional cycling teams, Starley Primal Pro-Cycling.
Tanya started her cycling career racing for Ipswich Bicycle Club just two years ago; she now travels all over the UK and abroad to race against some of the world's best cyclists. Women’s cycling is going from strength to strength, just this year Tanya has taken part in eight televised races including the Tour Series, the Milk Race and the National Championship Road and Circuit Races. This level of racing requires a huge commitment; Tanya trains 12-15 hours per week around her full time career and playing her part in promoting women’s cycling.
Tanya relies heavily on the use of a car to get to races. Unfortunately her own car broke down earlier this year, after which our Ford Rental team were happy to step in with a brand new Fiesta Zetec 5dr. With fold flat seating, 54.3 miles per gallon on the combined cycle (mixture of motorway and around the town driving), air conditioning the Fiesta was the perfect choice for Tanya.
Though her cycling career has been in road-racing, as this season comes to an end Tanya is planning to try her hand at Track racing and will be taking her new Fiesta down to London’s Velodrome, which of course was previously used for the 2012 Olympics. The very best of luck to Tanya for both her new challenge in track racing this winter, and for the new road racing season next year.
