WHEN YOU’RE an international snowboarding superstar used to big air and fast descents, you might struggle to find a rush on inner-city streets.

But that’s not a problem for two-time Olympian Aimee Fuller, who often takes to a motorbike to ‘blow away the cobwebs’.

Following a childhood spent on two wheels – which culminated in a second place finish at the British motocross championships – Aimee discovered snowboarding at the age of 12 and her career took off. But motorcycling was never far from her thoughts, and at the age of 22 she bit the bullet and took her full test, before recently joining Triumph Motorcycles as an ambassador.

Of riding, the 27-year-old commented: “To physically just enjoy and ride, it’s the same feeling as when I snowboard. It’s escapism. The first thing I did after Sochi 2014 Olympics was pass my full motorcycle test.

“Going with my dad and grandad to motocross meets in Kent and Sussex was probably what got me hooked! I started racing motocross bikes from the age of 6 until 9 and finished 2nd in the British Champs.

“Since then I’ve done lots of trail riding, some more motocross but mostly spent time on my Triumph Street Twin. I love the way that it looks, rides and makes me feel. It’s absolutely perfect for commuting and to blow away the cobwebs.”

Aimee has now starred in a short video produced by Triumph, in which she reveals her intense training regime, focus, and how she likes to get a rush on two wheels.
