Ellen Skerritt, 21, living in Spain, Brisbane is where I call home, studying a Bachelor in Communication – Journalism, represent Queensland Academy of Sport and racing for the women’s professional road cycling team Ale Cipollini.
Ellen Skerritt took on the competitive road cycling scene in Australia at 15 years old. Once a hobby, it has now evolved into a full-time addiction and professional career at 21 years… And she wouldn’t have it any other way.
Besides training 20 hours +/- on the bike each week, Ellen also includes strength and conditioning and Pilates into her routine. Focusing on both nutrition and quality recovery practices to ensure top performance.
Whilst racing in her home country and across Europe (or wherever cycling may take her!) Ellen manages her athletic career with part-time study in a Bachelor in Communications.
Ellen’s goals for 2016 are to play a key role within her new professional road cycling team – Ale Cipollini and contribute to team results. Ellen’s major goal for 2016 is compete in the Worlds Teams Time trial in Qatar later this year in October.
Throughout Ellen’s life sport has always been an important component. She is very passionate about living a healthy lifestyle, thoroughly enjoys being outdoors and thrives in a competitive environment.
“Get on up, when you’re down, baby, take a good look around, I know it’s not much, but it’s okay. We’ll keep on movin’ on anyway.”
