Sport of Choice: Cyclist

I live a very low carb diet even though I am an endurance athlete. I find carbs, especially High GI carbs leave me lethargic and cause be to retain water, especially in stage races.

Having ridden for the ASG Bestmed team from mid 2013 to end 2015. Desray competed in her first SA Cycling Champs held in Durban in 2014 and managed to take 2nd in the time trial and 3rd in the Road Race in the 35 to 39 Vet Category.
