Rider Bio:

Peta Mullens was born on the 3rd March 1988 in Bendigo, Victoria (Australia). Since the day she was born Mullens has a very interesting story. She was born a twin, four weeks premature and unconscious. After eight minutes with no air and a tube down her throat, She took her first breath. She was born an ‘Aussie Battler’.

Mullens was an active child from the age of 9, competing in athletics and cross country, and at just 14 she completed her first marathon. At 15 she was crowned Australian Mountain Running Champion, then dabbled in Triathlon for 3 years before collecting Junior Australian titles in Road & Track Cycling, in addition to a bronze medal at the Junior Worlds. She raced for the AIS in Europe for two years before meeting a boy in Bendigo, and leaving the sporting culture she had lived and breathed her whole life.

She tried to ease herself into the real world but instead wanted a piece of everything if threw at her. She was working full-time in Retail Management, studying a Diploma of Conveyancing and renovating houses in-between training when she secured another two National titles in XCM and XCO MTB disciplines. After missing an Olympic year cycle, and with the Commonwealth Games fast approaching Mullens decided that she was hungry for something more.

So this year Mullens will pack her suit-case, her dreams and ambitions and of course her new orange Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling kit, and re-locate to Europe to complete a full season both on and off road. She will be combining a domestique roll on the road with a World Cup season on the MTB, all while chasing a sixth National title, a birth at the Commonwealth Games and World Championships, and more amazing memories to continue on her journey as an ‘Aussie Battler’.

Despite her focus in on the MTB Mullens made herself a career on the road as well give the fact she has won the National Road Championships in Ballarat in January 2015.

Peta’s abilities and strengths will make her an indispensable member of the team.
