Helen Gaskell is a professional Downhill Bike Rider, she has ridden for Team Halfords Bikehut and Four Mountains. She started out racing as a cross country rider at the age of 10. Moving through the Youth and Junior ranks she continued to race this discipline for 5 years collecting numerous podiums in the national series and National Championships title.

At fifteen she discovered Downhill racing which she started to race alongside the cross country races. Finding it hard to commit to both arduous disciplines she quickly decided to concentrate her efforts on the Downhill events.
