What do you like to do besides racing bikes?

Before I decided to focus on cycling, I was an avid tennis player.  I played almost every day and would compete in tournaments on the weekends, which were held all up and down the front range of Colorado.  Nowadays I still play on my high school varsity tennis team, in the fall when I’m not riding as often.  I also enjoy some staple Colorado activities, like fly fishing, skiing, and camping. 

 

What’s your happiest place?

My favorite place would have to be the mountains; living in Colorado there is really great access to beautiful, wild spaces, which are perfect for a variety of outdoor activities.  The Colorado Rocky Mountains are really a great place for mountain biking, and are home to so many great trails.

 

What’s your top moment on the bike that’s not a result?

I really enjoy my local Saturday group ride.  The ride starts five minutes from my house, and does a great loop around Colorado Springs that takes about three hours.  It’s an excellent way to talk to/ meet other riders, and there are often pros who will join in as well!  I enjoy the competition of it, especially in the early spring when I’m itching to get racing.  With races almost every weekend, I don’t often get a chance to ride it, so when I do get to I love it!   

 

What specialty dish do you like to cook?

My family and I make a lot of burritos, they are quick, easy, and tasty!

 

What other non-biking related fact(s) about yourself would you like to share?

We have a cool little Jack Russell terrier, and her name is Freya.

 

What schooling are you doing next year?

I’m a senior at Palmer High School in down town Colorado Springs with a full International Bachelorette honors schedule.
