Taylor (nee Tadich) took up cycling when she was 13 and eventually found herself on the world stage. Starting off on the track, she was convinced to switch to road racing due to her stamina, and quickly made her mark.
She was selected in the Victorian junior cycling team, and was selected to join the Institute of Sport in Canberra.
She competed in the World Junior Road Titles and the World Senior Championships, and became the first Australian road cyclist to win a medal in the world titles.
Taylor won the Australian women’s road championship, and also finished second and third in later titles.
She also represented Australia at the Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur and Manchester.
