Video: Dani King on the 2016 Women’s Tour

We caught up with Dani King ahead of the final Women's Tour round to find out how she's getting on

Wiggle High5 are entering the final stage of the women’s tour with a stage win and two podium places to their name, as well as having a rider third on GC.

Team manager Rochelle Gilmore has already told us that this is one of the most important races in their calendar, and all of the riders have said they’re pleased to be riding on a team with so many strong and on-form team mates. 

The race has been a fantastic edition thus far, and team rider Dani King told us that she’s really enjoyed the new and more challenging terrain on offer at this year’s race.

Asked about the tactics, King told us today: “There was some miscommunication between them [the riders] and the DS, maybe a couple of mistakes made were, but when you’re under pressure I think it’s hard to make decisions straight away, sometimes you make mistakes.”

Ahead of the final day, we took a couple minutes to chat to Dani King to find out how she’s feeling about the race…

Whilst we were at it, we also asked the Olympic track champ turned roadie a couple of multiple choice questions – here are her selections…
