I'm a local Ogden girl who started riding bikes about 4 years ago to fill the competitive void left after college basketball. Last year I decided to take cycling a "little more serious" and was able to reap the benefits of more structured training. After racing almost every weekend of the summer, I ended the season with a Cat 1 National Championship and a 6th place finish at Leadville. This year I was lucky enough to be invited to Team Jamis after upgrading to Pro status. I've spent the last 27 months juggling physician assistant school at the University of Utah, riding my bike as much as physically possible, and being a wife to my incredibly supportive husband Brandon. Racing in my hometown on the same trails I train on makes the Mt. Ogden 100K an annual highlight. This year it will be a great way to celebrate my graduation and the end of another amazing summer of racing.
