When did the pair get married?

Sara admitted it took her some time to fall in love with Geraint.

But once she did, she has never looked back.

 

She told British Cycling magazine: "The first two times I met Geraint he’d had a few so wouldn’t exactly say it was love at first sight.

"I did like him though, and the more I got to know him the more I did."

The pair met through their mutual friends who were dating each other in 2007.

Sara and Geraint now live in Monaco, a popular location for professional cyclists and other athletes.
