Zoe is a force to be reckoned with, and a young star who is leading the ranks in competition, spreading her skills by cycling across various disciplines of track, road and cyclocross. At just 15 years old, Zoe achieved some impressive results over the 2019 and 2020 seasons, with further hopes for years to come and to be a professional in the future.
Born into a family with cycling pedigree, Zoe is sister to rising star Elynor Backstedt and her father, Magnus won the Paris-Roubaix classic in 2004, in addition to stage wins in both the Tour de France and Giro D’Italia, whilst her mother, Megan, competed for Wales at the Commonwealth Games – so it’s no surprise she has taken to the pedals!
Zoe is very excited to be riding for the Tormans-Acrog CX team for the 2020 season and enjoying racing again.
