Hometown: Pasadena, CaliforniaCurrent home: DenverRacing disciplines: Former roadie turned mountain biker

Favorite Race/racing highlights: Earning podiums in all but one race last season, plus two state and regional championship medals. I can only hope minimal training goes so well in 2017.
Bikes: Mountain – Liv/Giant Lust, Road – Cervelo R5, Cross/commuter – Felt FX5
Pedal preference: Speedplay on the road, SPD for mtn and cross
Rollers or trainer? Neither – although the computrainer is a necessary evil during long winter months.
Bibs or shorts? Shorts
Skinsuit or kit? Kit, to avoid the “dancing around the porta-potty because I really need to pee” dance
Water or drink mix? Water
Favorite mid-ride nutrition: For huge endeavors, Allen Lim’s rice cakes. For a typical ride, Honeystinger gummies or waffles.
Place I would most like to ride a bike…. On the road, Southern France. On the mountain bike – Slovenia … closer to home – Park City, Utah is the best.
When I am not riding a bike ….. I rock climb, cross country ski, hang out with my husband and husky, travel … but let’s be honest, I mostly have my nose in a textbook these days!
