Katie Colclough Profile

Katie Colclough is a product of British Cycling’s Development programme and a member of the Olympic Academy.



She has achieved a host of medals on the track at senior World Cup level, in team pursuit and points race events, despite her youth and the fact that she will still be at U23 level until 2013.



On the road, her most impressive result was silver at the U23 European Road Race Championships at the age of nineteen. In that race she attacked boldly with a lap of the course to go, and held off a late surge from Marianne Vos to get the silver medal. She has also placed second in the U23 British Road Race championship in both 2009 and 2010.



Her positive results was rewarded with a professional contract at the HTC-Highroad team for 2011, a commitment which she plans to balance with her track cycling and her longer-term aim of the 2012 London Olympics.

In 2012, Colclough signed for Specialized-Lululemon and took a stage of the Gracia-Orlova stage race in the Czech Republic, as well as the 2013 Team Time Trial Championships in Firenze, before announcing her retirement shortly after.
