Other Cycling is in Sarah's family. Her grandfather, Ron Ulmer, represented New Zealand in track cycling at the 1938 Empire Games and her father, Gary Ulmer, won national titles in track and road cycling in the 1950s and 1960s.

Melbourne should hold good memories for Sarah because it was here that she first broke the Individual Pursuit record in May, 2004. She rode 3.30.604 to beat the previous record held by Leontien Zijlaard-Van Moorsel from the Netherlands. Sarah has since broken this record several times.

She says that she has become more performance orientated over the last few years. In the 2004 Olympics, Sarah flew into Athens just days before Sarah's 3000m Individual Pursuit race. Sarah skipped the Opening Ceremony, preferring to concentrate on her preparation. Her preparation paid off when she won the gold medal.

She almost quit cycling in early 2004 because she lacked confidence in herself and her performances. She credits her recent success in the sport to Brendon Cameron, her boyfriend and coach, because of his patience and faith in her.

Her increased motivation to cycle could also be put down to the fact that she is now concentrating on road racing, particularly the road time trial.
