Three-time BMX World Champion, Olympic Athlete and Track Cyclist, Shanaze Reade, joins me on the podcast this week. Shanaze has dominated both female and male-led cycling competitions across the globe – winning gold titles whilst competing with broken bones and serious sport injuries. With only 6 weeks of training in-between competitions, Shanaze also became a Champion Track Cyclist after winning gold in her first rookie year of competing. She is a true inspiration in sport but also in everyday life. In 2017, after a tough retirement decision, Shanaze became addicted to alcohol and her life hit rock bottom. She now speaks openly about alcoholism – how she received support and took control of her life again. After beginning a life of sobriety, Shanaze came out of retirement and began racing again, dominating the sport as usual after a two year hiatus. Wow. Honestly you’re going to love this woman and this conversation, she’s a true winner who takes on any challenge to the best of her ability. I learned a lot, I’m sure you will too.
