Bike test success for Olympics hopeful
31 January 2014 13:49
Just weeks before she will head off to the Sochi Winter Olympics, Team GB’s women’s slopestyle snowboarder Aimee Fuller has passed her CBT with the help of KTM UK.
Fuller, a 22 year old snowboarder based in Holywood, Northern Ireland, qualified for the Olympics with a fifth and eleventh at the last two World Cups, and sits eighth in the world rankings.
Sitting her test on a KTM 125 Duke, Aimee is no stranger to the Austrian machines, racing motocross on a KTM 50SX for a number of years before taking to the slopes.
With a full test planned for after the Russian adventure, Fuller already has big plans for her biking future: “I’ve always wanted to get a road bike, but I’ve been so busy travelling and competing all over the world to find the time to do it. Fortunately, I was able to do my CBT with Shires on a 125 Duke. I’ve sold my car now, so once the games in Sochi are finished I’m going to complete my full test and get a 390 Duke.
“Bikes will be a buzz for me when I’m away from the slopes and I’m planning a big tour through Norway in the summer taking in snowboarding, surfing and bikes – as long as I pass my test!"
