Having Lauren on the team will give us the capacity to maintain the quality of our print magazine while keeping pace with the daily demands of the internet. Plus, it’s always good to have a head full of new ideas and enthusiasm – I’m looking forward to hearing what new perspectives Lauren can bring to us.”
Jenkins said: “I can’t wait to get started with Singletrack. The team, publishers and whole ethos is refreshing, and I’ve always been a fan of how they push the boundaries with women’s mountain biking. For all of us there’s so much more we can do to make the sport more inclusive so I’m looking forward to a new adventure.”
