Kaarle set about training up to 24 hours a week, a
practice she continues today.
However, she said she also learnt that rest in the
lead up to a race was equally important.
"Resting before a race was something that took a
bit of getting used to, but now I really appreciate
it," she said.
"As a middle distance runner I would continue
training in the lead up to a race, but as a sprint
cyclist I had to taper my training."
Despite the need to reassess her approach to
training, dedication and commitment to her sport
has paid off for Kaarle.
"I'm living my dream to represent my country, I'm
traveling the world and doing what I love," she said.
"I'm even being paid to do what I love as a
professional rider with Team Jayco AIS.
"My next goal is an Olympic gold, both in the
team and individual events."
In the meantime, Kaarle is on track for the World
Championships after securing eligibility for the event
in the first of four World Cup qualifying rounds in
Melbourne in December.

Other qualifying World Cup rounds were conducted
in Columbia in December, Beijing in January and the
final round will be held in Manchester in late February.
"I think I will attend the Manchester World Cup
round as it will be a good warm up for the World
Championships," she said.
