90. SD Worx's Anna Shackley is Britain's next cycling star

Cyclist Magazine Podcast

Oct 19 2023 • 41 mins

For this week’s episode, Emma and Will are joined by the formidable Anna Shackley who rides for SD Worx and, who at just 22 years old, has had a glittering summer.


Often the domestique, Shackley has her own set of decent results. Highlights include a win in the under-23 race at the British National Championships (5th overall), third place in the under-23 race at her home World Championships in Scotland, second place at the first Tour de l’Avenir Femmes, a top-10 finish at the Tour de Romandie (supporting Demi Vollering to victory) and second place at the under-23 European Championships.


Not bad, hey? Shackley chats about her role within the super team, what it’s like riding among some of the biggest names in the sport and, ultimately, where she sees herself progressing.

She is also candid about the jump from junior level to WorldTour, the lack of women’s U23 races as well as the issues in the UK racing scene and what needs to be done to nurture youngsters coming up the ranks.


Interview starts at 5:45.
