Three years ago, Ellie was introduced to cycling. She quickly felt a passion for the sport and was excited to save up for her first race bike. Ellie is in her second year at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri studying for a degree in exercise science. During the school year, she races for Lindenwood University’s collegiate cycling team. When Ellie is not in Missouri for school she looks forward to spending her time training and racing in Colorado. She is looking forward to a great year and working with her new teammates.
