Some who witnessed Izzy Flint's crash in New Zealand described it as the most horrific incident they'd ever seen...

Without close family and friends nearby, Izzy had to venture back home to Tasmania with a series of physical injuries but also with what they called a 'severe concussion'. Over the following 18 months, she's had to come to terms with the often hidden impacts of concussion and a different outlook on life.

In her podcast episode with TA, we extend on the article and video previously done featuring Izzy to chat all things cycling, Launceston and concussion; including the importance of family and friends, the challenges of comprehending changes and explaining to others as well as future ambitions.
