|Why do you love cycling?|
Cycling is meditative for me. It's so relaxing to be surrounded by nature, breathing fresh air, & just focusing on the dirt in front on my tires. My mom, dad, & brother all ride mountain bikes too. It's really fun to take family rides & spend time together. At MTB races we camp & meet new people that like to ride bikes too - it's the BEST!
|Why do you love riding for Liv?|
First of all, I ADORE my Liv bikes! The Hail is my go-to enduro rig, but the Intrigue is super playful & an absolute joy to ride! I tested the Pique 29 this summer & fell in love all over again. Not only does Liv have rad bikes, but the people that make up the Liv brand are super cool! Everyone is kind, supportive, & best of all, passionate about getting more women on bikes!
|What is your favorite place to travel?|
My favorite place so far is Whistler, British Colombia, but I really look forward to traveling around the globe to race the Enduro World Series (EWS80 until I'm 17) with the Liv Global Gravity Team!
|What is your favorite food?|
Pre-vegan: The Foggy Goggle's Ziti Romano / Post-Vegan: my mom's lentil soup
|Who is your favorite riding partner?|
My dad. <3 He taught me how to ride, even pushed me up hills on my bike when I was little & got tired easily. Now that I'm older he helps me train for races. When I first started, there weren't other girls my age to ride with, so he would enter every race & help me inspect the course. During the race, he would follow me the whole time just to be supportive & cheer me on. We'll always have a special bond through biking.
