Shannon Miraglia always led an active lifestyle until a back injury prevented her from exercising for 18 months. As a part of her recovery program and in an effort to get back to her “optimum weight” Shannon took up cycling with the Perth Integrated Health Cycling Group. Six months later, (and 14kg lost) Shannon participated in the Niche Living Women’s Training Program conducted by Hall Cycle Training and soon after completing the program decided to step up from participation events to racing. Shannon will come to the 2015 Tour as a part of the Next Vision Women’s Cycling Team, by her own admission she may not be a contender at the tour, but that’s not the point.
