In 2010, Samantha became both the youngest person ever to complete the 4 Deserts Series and the first woman to complete the 4 Deserts "Grand Slam," finishing all four of the grueling 155-mile endurance races in a single year.
Sam has also been a top finisher in a number of other marathons and ultra endurance races. Her most recent accomplishment in 2014 was running 2 marathons daily for 32 days across South Africa (2350kms in total). Her journey raised funds on behalf of Save the Children to set up a social enterprise business in South Africa that will support education and health for young South African women.
Jessica Laws has been competing in track cycling for ten years and when she started she had no background in the sport at the ripe old age of 31 years. Jess has competed in both Masters and Elite events and has been hugely successful.
Originally training as a pure track sprinter, her experience also extends to endurance and road. Jess's goals are to improve on her current world’s best time in the flying 200mTT, and attempt to break the current times for the 500mTT.
Jess currently works as a Podiatrist for a local podiatry practice. She has recently moved interstate to the ACT and has immersed herself into the cycling community by becoming a club cycling coach as well as undertaking her own training.
"During my cycling career I have battled injury setbacks but this has only served to make me a stronger person. I believe in encouraging people to try something new at any age and to step out of their comfort zone no matter what the activity." - Jessica Laws
