I was introduced to mountain biking at university and it soon became my main sport in life. I even entered a few XC races then. What was I thinking? Other sports took over and the bike was relegated to the back of the shed.
A few years back, I dug out the old bike and got back into the XC. Having been converted to a full suspension bike, the Alps and Whistler with Ticket2rideBC soon followed and I’ve never looked back. After my second trip to Whistler with Ticket2RideBC and some real highs - throwing myself off the GLC drop for the first time – I thought I’d give racing a try.
My first race was the final round of the season for the Dragon Championship and was the muddiest couple of days riding ever, but I was hooked. 2008 was my first full season of racing as one of the few girls in the Masters category.
