Big interview: Emma Pooley

After taking a step back from the top tier of the sport to finish a PhD, Britain’s Emma Pooley is returning to full-time racing in 2014. As she made the final touches to her pre-season training, Richard Abraham caught up with the former world time trial champion

Hi Emma, how’s the winter training going?

Emma Pooley: It’s hard, but I’m enjoying it. I’m in Perth, Australia, where I spend most winters. I’m out here for three months because I don’t start racing until quite late on in the season. I’ve also got family here, and I even had an academic conference out here at the University of Western Australia. It is a bit too hot though; it was 44°C the other weekend, which was a bit of a shock.
