PROFILE

Favorite Race Moment
2021 National Championships. We took 4 National Championships in the team but the really memorable part was how excited the whole team were for each other. Everyone lended info, knowledge and passion to each other and this allowed us to reach an incredible high level. Our staff was composed of loved ones, coaches and even former riders and it truly was all for one.

THEIR FAVORITE POWER WORKOUT: One of our favorites for cx is 30/30’s into a 3 min sustained effort. And full gas cx style start sprints into a threshold piece. These efforts simulate the style of racing that cx is and help us prepare physically for the demands of the sport.

THIER FAVORITE CROSS TRAINING WORKOUT: We run and lift. Sound stability and leg strength is vital for cx as is a degree of athleticism. Incorporating run sprints and challenging strength moves keep us stable and healthy.

AFTER A RACE... They like to enjoy a nice beer - IPA specifically, burgers, and some ice cream.
