How did you get into cycling?

My grandfather was a road racer and his love for riding was passed down to my dad. My dad started riding cross-country and eventually downhill. When I was 8 he started taking me on rides more and more often and before I knew it I was hooked and started racing downhill at age 10.

You're on a road trip to your favorite riding spot. Are you listening to a podcast or music? What's on your playlist?

I am a HUGE fan of the Crime Junkie podcast but, if I'm listening to music it is definitely hip-hop throwback playlist!

If you could choose any person to ride with (anywhere in the world, living or not living), who would it be and why?

Tara Llanes was always my role model when I was growing up and racing. At my first national championship race she let me push her bike back up to the start of the 4X and that is still one of my favorite memories to date. I had the opportunity to meet her before her accident and after her accident many years later in Whistler. I would love to ride with Tara in Whistler; a woman who pushed the boundaries of mountain biking and set the stage for women. She continues to push the boundaries in all aspects of her life and it is so inspiring. She is honestly one of the most genuine, amazing, bada$$ women I've ever had the pleasure of meeting.

What would you say to a non-cyclist or someone who is just getting into the sport to encourage them?

Don't give up! Trust the process and allow yourself to be vulnerable and learn from your mistakes. Practice makes progression.

Do you have a favorite cycling tip to share?

Keep those pedals level and being aware of your body position. Set yourself up with a strong foundation and everything will grow from there!
