BAMbassador Squash Falconer European Elliptigo Champion
In 2015 BAMbassador Squash Falconer won the European Elliptigo Championships. For those in the know an Elliptigo is a cross between a scooter and a bike and involves a jogging motion to move the vehicle. All human powered and all up hill. We salute her.
“I was so excited to be back for the ElliptiGo European Championships in Aix Les Bains… and I was also really nervous. It’s a tough race, all uphill! 22km with a 1277m climb up to the top Mt Revard. The event was brilliantly organised and there are so many lovely people there, supporting and competing. Although there was more wind on the mountain this year which resulted in a slightly slower time I was delighted to be the Woman’s winner with a time of exactly 2hrs!”
