Roisin McCourt

Roisin is a qualified lawyer currently working for Standard Chartered in London in Group Compliance.  Under this corporate bonnet is an Oxford Classicist, college and university rower, and (when she can stay off the fags for long enough) a very talented athlete.  Her recent riding experience has been on the polo field, though in preparation for the Mongol Derby she is riding every weekend under the tutelage of Derby Endurance Guru Maggie Pattinson in Surrey.

Out of the saddle she has taken up Cross Fit to prepare her body for the Derby onslaught.

This Mongol Derby thing had better be all the fun it’s cracked up to be. Or I will weep bitter tears at the thought of my ass in vomit coloured nylon alone.
