Bike test success for Olympics hopeful

Published: 31 January 2014

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!"
