I am incredibly grateful and feel so lucky for the team I have around me, supporting and backing me as I chase my goals and dreams. I love my sport and I’m passionate about the brands I work with. I fully believe in the products and values of the companies and I’m super excited to be part of the teams.
I’m incredibly excited to be part of the Purplepatch team and to be able to be coached by Matt Dixon. Having made the decision to turn Professional at the end of 2013, I knew a few things had to change, in order to make the leap to the next level, and to achieve my goals. I’d been aware of Matt and his achievements with his athletes for a few years and had been drawn to his style of coaching and development. After being able to spend a week with Matt and his squad, I knew I wanted to be part of it permanently and that this was the right environment to support and challenge me. I’m incredibly excited about what lies ahead as part of the Purplepatch team and being able to learn and develop as an athlete and person under Matt’s guidance. I can’t wait to get stuck in and to learn from Matt, his team and the other Purplepatch athletes
I am very excited to be racing as a Scody athlete this year and representing the brand. They are an awesome Australian company, who keep the design and manufacturing in house, in Australia. I love that! They have great designs and the quality and therefore comfort of the apparel is fantastic. They are a company who really want to build relationships with the athletes, and it’s great to have an opportunity to truly work in partnership with a brand. Check out all their sporting apparel online. They also offer custom made kit, for your company, or sports team, or even if you just want to have your own kit!
Use my discount “LauraS” to shop away on their retail site.
For custom kit, please get in touch with me for more information and so I can refer you and help get things started.
Pleased to announce I will be riding Ceepo bikes for the coming season. Excited to be riding the new Viper R Time Trial bike for my races. Having been buying my own bikes for many years it’s great to have this opportunity through Ceepo and to have their support and confidence in me. Not only that, I get the opportunity to have a road bike too, so I’m looking forward to winging around with my Stinger.
This year I gained power! Amazing! Whilst I think it’s important to learn to train and race on feel, having power to support my training and racing is key as well. Whether it being as a guide in training, or as a limiter on the easy days. I’m excited to be working with PowerTap for 2016, and have the ability to utilise the range of power devices they have, with the Hub, P1 pedals and C1 cranks.
Having the best equipment is so key to support me in my training and racing as I work towards my goals. I am grateful to be supported by Profile Design. They provide a great selection of wheels for training and racing, as well as hydration systems and aero bar set ups and more. It’s fantastic to be part of the team.
Darryl and the Shotz team have been great and have provided me guidance around my nutrition plan both pre and during races. So far so good. It’s great to know that I can go into a race with the confidence that my nutrition is sorted and will ensure I perform to my best using a combination of the Shotz gels and Shotz tabs. I’m excited to be part of this team

I have long been a fan of Skins! So I’m extremely happy to be a Skins Ambassador. I was first introduced to them in my Netballing days back in England and since then, they have form a key part of my training and racing kit. I always wear my RY400 Recovery leggings for long haul travel as well as often sleeping in a pair, and they’ll be the first thing on after hard training sessions.
Another thing I love about Skins, is that they use the power of sport to be a brand that stands up to many current and key social issues. Follow Skins CEO Jaimie Fuller http://watercooler.skins.net for some great insights and perspectives.

Another product and brand that I absolutely love! I was lucky enough to be able to race in a Bambino helmet for Vegas and have never looked back since. These have been designed in conjunction with UK Sport, so maybe I feel a little bit of a connection to home? Super slick design and so comfy too be it the Mojito for training, or the Bambino for racing and now the new Infinity with the cool vents! Love it!
One of the not so loveable things about being a Triathlete is traveling with a bike. I love the travel and experiencing races and training around the world, but having to pack up my bike and lug it to check in, with the fear of getting charged excessive amounts of money for being fit and healthy, is not my greatest passion. However with Scicon bags I’m super excited to know my bike will travel in style. With limited dismantling required the bike can be packed up quickly and easily and can travel safely. Pretty excited to have Scicon supporting me as I navigate the globe!
I’ve been a fan of Funkita swim wear for several years, so I’m very excited to be an Ambassador for the brand. They just ouze energy, with awesome colours and fab designs! It makes swimming so much more fun with Funkita swimmers to brighten up the pool!
So lucky to partner with A Runners Mind, an awesome local running shop, that has a fantastic community feel and energy. For me being able to work with a shop, enables us to find the right shoes (regardless of brand) for training and racing, over the different distances.
I have been so impressed with the team at A Runners Mind so far with their support and knowledge and so much help in testing out and finding the right shoe for me to run fast in!
Looking forward to a great partnership with the ARM team.
I first met the Kit Brix team at The Triathlon Show in the UK at the beginning of 2013. Then by chance met them again at Interbike in September 2013, and was impressed that Rob remembered talking to me back in the UK. I was hooked not only by Rob’s energy and passion, and his business partner, the inspiring and impressionable, Lara Morgan, but also by the product, KitBrix bags. With a military background myself, we had plenty of things in common. Such a simple idea, to keep your life and kit in order. These bags are sturdy, and durable, can be used singularly or zipped together. Great for all sports really, individual and team as well as any activity. Get organised! #KeepItTogether

I feel incredibly lucky to have met Lara Morgan by chance at Interbike 2013. She is inspirational, and a driver for women in sport. We had many common networks and links, one being we are both involved in the Women’s Sports Trust. (Activbod give 10% of net profit to the Women’s Sports Trust) I am therefore honoured to be a brand Ambassador for ActivBod. Body and skin care products specifically designed for the active lifestyle. I love the products and love the brand and everything it stands for.
My favourite product is the Game Changer Face Scrub…makes me feel alive and wakes me up ready to tackle the day. However I also think the Cooling Finishing Lotion is great to use post work out. My legs feel like they are floating after I’ve used it! Amazing!
I love supporting small brands who are unique, but that have big voices and energy! Sock Mine is one of these. The great thing about Sock Mine, is that they are based only minutes away from where I was born in the UK, and so I am excited to be able to support a local company, and support British manufacturing.
Looking forward to working with the Sock Mine team and wearing some awesome socks to train and race in, not just with the awesome designs, but the sports and fabric design.

I have always loved Oakley sunglasses and kit and I train and race in my Oakley sunnies pretty much whatever the weather. I’m thrilled to be part of this team. Although I’m only a small fish in the big scheme of things, I’m still very grateful for the support
I am very excited to be a Brand Ambassador for Cycology. I have been a keen fan of the brand and their inspiring t.shirts for a while and have purchased many for myself as well as for friends. I was therefore really excited to be able to meet the team and hear about their plans for the future, and I’m very happy to be involved. Cycology is only a couple of years old but already rapidly growing in it’s appeal and fan base around the globe. Creating awesome t.shirts based on cycling, triathlon and running they have already expanded to hoodies and other accessories. With new designs coming out every couple of months, there’s always new kit to buy to top up your Cycology wardrobe. Thank you for letting me part of this.
