Q: How did you find out about the Windy Pandas and who/what made you join the team?
A: Alam

Q: How is your experience so far? Is it what you expected? or not at all…
A: It’s sort of what I expected having known alam been doing this a long time and telling me a lot about the team and what happens. I’be enjoyed the workout it gives me and never expected I’d be able to race after 4/5 sessions which I felt was quite an achievement!

I didn’t realise though how much stamina needed – must learn to work on this!
