What are you doing in your community to mentor/promote cyclist?
For the past three years I have been the Threshold Sports women’s team director/coordinator. I have organized and lead women’s only group rides on a weekly basis to encourage and help teach women better bike handling, group riding skills, and bike safety.
What you like to do when you are not bike racing: I enjoy spending time with my supportive husband and our amazing families. I also love snowboarding, mountain biking, eating sushi, and spending time in the great outdoors.
Your most memorable experience on and off the bike: Two weeks before the Bear Lake Road Race my training partner was in a life threatening bicycle accident. She had to be air lifted to a trauma center, spent 18 hours in surgery, and spend the night on a ventilator. She broke over 9 bones and completely shattered her elbow. After the accident I had an extremely hard time getting back on the bike, but I did, and that next weekend I won the Bear Lake road race for Toby. That was my first win as a Cat 1,2,3. It was an amazing experience watching her strength and determination as she learned to walk again and later joined me on a ride. This experience helped me realize every moment in life is a gift.
Occupation off the bike: Respiratory Therapist, Davis Hospital, working NICU and ICU.
What inspires you? “Suffering is essential to the beauty and mystery of the sport. It gives the ride meaning. The greatest racers have a love of suffering that goes beyond any ratio of sacrifice to payoff.” –Allen Lim.
