Bio:

The daughter of a Jamaican father and an Irish mother, Shanaze Reade began racing in 1998 at the age of 10, in Crewe, a town in Cheshire, England. A local track operator named Bob Field, whose son also raced at the time, became her mentor. She was influenced by BMX professional racer, Jamie Staff, who was also from Crewe and raced at Reade's home track before Reade's career began and during its early stages. She bought her first BMX bike for £1 (roughly $1.50) and has loved the sport ever since.
