I watched my husband race cyclocross a few times back in 2011 and thought he was super crazy! I had hardly been on a bike and was very fearful. When I finally tried it, I found that it was the hardest workout I’d ever done and I LOVED it! (Even after finishing 37/50 in the beginners) I was inspired by those girls flying past as they lapped me…Within 2 seasons I was racing with those fast girls and training for nationals in Austin!!! Cyclocross has pushed me to overcome fears and encouraged me to do things I never thought I’d do. I love the atmosphere and community it entails. This is one of the most inclusive sports! Anyone can come out and have fun! I’m so grateful for all the great friends we’ve made along the way. I have since experienced road racing (including a stage race), competed in one full Ironman and two halfs, and learned (am learning) how to mountain bike. I am looking forward to racing more mountain bikes, road bikes, gravel bikes, and cross bikes with my friends.
