Post an amazingly successful 2013, Katie Archibald is all set to try for the winning crown at the upcoming World championships. The young Scot rider has recently shifted her base from Edinburgh to Manchester and is hopeful that her teaming with Brit Cycling would be able to achieve her dream of life.
Apart from the Words, the 19-year-old red head is also on plan to compete in Common wealth Games to be hosted by Glasgow. Archibald has been showing quite a success in the later half of 2013, with 2 medals at Brit Track Championship hosted at September & also set a Scot record in individual pursuit the next month.
However, her 2013 achievements do not end here. The Edinburgh cyclist has also assisted all-conquering Britain team pursuit team to land up with gold medal in European Championships as well as achieve silver & bronze medals at Manchester World.
“The greatest thing is getting selected for World Championships. Besides, since it’s a year of Commonwealth Games, it would be tough to ignore it”, noted Archibald. The Scot was declared as SSE Next Genre Ambassador in summer last year.
Currently Katie is in Manchester as a participant of British Cycling Olympic Academy program & apart from Glasgow Commonwealth, the young Scot is insistent on riding in team pursuit at world Championships for Britain. The World Championship is to be held at Colombia soon.
The Olympic Program is surely something really phenomenal for Archibald as she is getting a wonderful opportunity to train alongside British cycling stars like Dani King & Laura Trott.
“To represent my country at that premier level had always been my goal since my initial years with cycling. But they won’t be making any announcement about the team till the month of May”, remarked Archibald stressing on her lifetime dream to represent Scotland at Worlds.
