I'm an American pro mountain biker, born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I currently live in Kelowna, BC but split my time between BC and CO when I'm not traveling for racing.
My favorite distances are the 75-100 mile days. I love the adventure and the mental aspect of endurance racing. I mainly focus on stage racing. You can find me in all the far off crevices of the world racing my mountain bike!
Personally, racing is about testing my personal limits, expanding my global frame of reference, and seeing the world. I have learned more about life and myself from racing and the relationships I've built through racing. I've met some of the most courageous, inspiring people at races and even met my husband at a bike race! I can't imagine what my life would have been like if I hadn't picked up a mountain bike.
Cycling has taught me how to deal with failure, the value of patience, the ability to be honest with myself and take responsibility for myself, to laugh at myself(taking yourself too seriously is a problem!), to overcome fear, given me confidence, the fact that anything is possible but you have to be brave enough to try, a positive attitude and perseverance are the keys to success in any situation, moving forward is the only option, the most important things in life are personal relationships,and there is only person responsible for living the life you imagined; YOU.
