7. What part of your training have you found works for you, but might be different or unique from your teammates or other cyclists?

11. What is your take on the frontier of being a female athlete, in India? Have you faced any challenges in the sphere that you’d like to share?

There is conditioning one has to break free from, internally and externally. There is the challenge of finding safe training environments when training solo. The positive being times are changing, there is help and support available.   

12.  Do you have any go-to nutrition tip for pre, during and post riding?

Fuel well and find what works for you   

13.  What do you do when you are not on the saddle? 

Nap! I like to read and bake and when I’m at home, it’s quality time with my doggo.   

Conclusion

Being somebody who has started cycling relatively recently, Samira has quite a few podium places to her name such as a third place in the ITT at the Cycling Nationals two months into her journey as a cyclist, and a second place in the same last year. This year, she won the Triathlon nationals and the South Asian Triathlon Championship. She is currently focussing more on cycling. We are excited to follow her journey as an athlete, and wish her all the best for her future endeavours.
