We asked Katie how the fundraising boost will help her 

“The funding from Gateley will help me buy a new training bike. I’ve had the one I’ve got at the moment since I started the sport, and I think it would be more expensive to pay for that one to be serviced because of the condition it’s in! There’s definitely a big boost to your confidence when you’re chosen for funding, especially in the uncertain times we’re in at the moment because it shows that people still have faith in you. Knowing you’re associated with some of the biggest names in British sport is really motivating, and hopefully I can go on and add my name to such an illustrious list.”
