What are your cycling goals??
Podium at U23 Nationals, make the 2018 Worlds team, win Collegiate individual omnium in the fall.
What Frame Did you choose??
At 5’2″ I am choosing to ride an XS LES 27.5 and XS Mach 4.
How were you introduced into cycling??
My dad first got me into mtb in the 9th grade with the Utah NICA league. A year later, I joined Summit Bike Club. I’d never liked biking in the past, but once I found a group of peers to bike with, I fell in love.
Since I’d done swim team as a kid, I competed in triathlons, especially XTERRA. I went to XTERRA Worlds in 2014 but then decided to shift my focus on mountain biking and I see how far I could go in this sport. Flying up and down trails with friends became a lot more fun than laps in a 25-yard pool (:
