She is a double Olympic Gold medalist (Beijing 2008 and London 2012) and 9 x World Champion track cyclist.

Since her retirement in 2012 Victoria has remained in the public eye and very high profile via television shows such as Strictly Come Dancing.

In 2015 she took on the audacious challenge to become a jump jockey in 12 months having never ridden a horse before, to ride at one of the biggest horse racing events in the world, the Cheltenham Festival.  She achieved this incredibly feat and came 5th – creating one of the biggest media stories of the year.

Since retirement she has been a key member of the BBC Radio Five Lives cycling commentary team and an ITV’s racing presenter.
