Name: Anna Buick
Home: Norwich, England
Role at OMX
Experience: 2018 will be my fifth year with OMX. I’ve grown up in a cycling family, have raced (at very varying degrees of competitiveness) for 13 years, and have worked in cycling media for the past six years.
Proudest professional moment: I’m proud of our Cape Epic media. It’s a big task to plan and then successfully deliver on eight days of consecutive racing. When I can satisfactorily tick every box each day, I’m proud.
Best racing result: 3rd, U23 British XC Championship 2010 & National Student CX Champ 2012.
Favourite race: That I have raced: a regional CX event, 14/12/2014 – the first time I won a race after a major injury in 2013. Nothing big, but very special. That I have attended: I always love going back to Nove Mesto Na Morave, Czech Republic – it’s comforting in its familiarity but exhilarating in its atmosphere. Also, the Songo.info Race Of Champions in the Township of Kayamani, SA – what an incredible, inspiring experience.
Food: Classic, rustic Italian.
Book: To Kill a Mocking Bird, by Harper Lee.
Possession: The ring my Mum bought me for my 21st birthday.
Type of trail: Fast and flowing with a few tricky little technical sections that make you swear and then make you grin!
Riding conditions: Hot and dry. If I’m tanning, I’m almost certainly happy!
Favourite place: New Zealand.
