Cathy grew up mountain biking in Southern California drawing inspiration from such awesomeness as the movie Rad, 90s neon bike shorts, and Missy Giove’s piranha. In 2003 she traded in her knobbies and neon for black spandex and a road bike, and quickly fell in love with road racing. After two seasons in Arizona she and her husband moved to Colorado and discovered winter. Two kids and five years later Cathy is looking to return to racing, this time in purple plaid spandex!
