I started riding when I was younger with my mom, dad and brother. We would pack picnics and go swimming on our rides. It was so much fun! As I got older, I participated in several MTB groups with other kids & even a MTB film camp. Eventually, I joined IdeRide, a local enduro race team where I learned to jump and focus on race technique/skill.
I am committed to...
getting more girls on bikes & sharing my love of cycling! <3
What piece of advice would you give to your 13-year-old self?
Uphills pay off, haha!
Why do you ride?
Riding makes me feel alive. I love being outside, getting exercise and most importantly, it's FUN! I'm not sure if it's the endorphins or something else, but the people that I've met through mountain biking are super rad and a blast to be around. I just love the whole MTB scene.
Who inspires you?
Caroline Washam, Rae Morrison, Isabella Naughton, Ella McAndrew, Tania Lillak, and Sarah Howerter because they're all really kind, awesome mountain bikers, and have inspired/helped me to be a better rider <3
What's your secret talent?
I'm not afraid of heights ;)
What is one thing you learned about yourself in 2020?
That I actually really like online schooling, which will come in very useful when I travel for the Enduro World Series in 2021 & beyond!
