Summary
When Joanna Rowsell Shand, then 13, decided to take on a challenge set by representatives from British Cycling visiting her school, she didn't realise that decision would change her life. As it turned out, Jo's power output was off the chart - the highest ever recorded for a female of her age, and she was quickly talent spotted for the junior cycling team. Not that the journey between that moment and Jo's subsequent status as a setter of multiple world records and a double Olympic champion was plain-sailing. In addition, Jo was - and remains to this day - a very shy girl, not least because of her condition, alopecia universalis, which took her hair from her just as her teenage years were about to strike. This is the story of how she battled her insecurities and doubts, as well as judgement, and even ridicule, from people around her, to became one of the most successful and respected athletes of her era
