IZZY FLINT

Isabella Flint (Izzy) first discovered bikes when she was a toddler. She started racing as an u/13 on the track where she caught the cycling bug and soon moved to riding road as well. After making both Tasmanian Road and Track state teams Izzy switched her focus to the dirt and she hasn’t looked back since! Izzy finished 2nd overall in the 2017/18 National Cross County Series, as well as claiming a silver medal at the National Championships in February 2018. Last year Izzy was crowned National Gravity Enduro Champion, and she also won round 2 of the U21 EWS continental series in November 2018. Izzy was recently crowned All Schools National Champion on the Gold Coast in July 2019.
