The Kenda Cannondale Women’s Elite MTB team are professional female mountain bikers who share the goal of advancing cycling while racing at the highest level. Each of our riders is experienced, articulate, accomplished and knowledgable in her own right, together under one team we represent a powerful combination of professionalism and passion for cycling. Through our racing, mentoring, coaching, and clinics, the team works to foster a bright future for the sport we love.

Favorite post-ride food or drink: Great big decadent salad with greens, nuts, beets, avocado, everything. Chips, guac and salsa. I like fresh and salty!


What are you getting into in 2018?
I own and manage our Kenda Cannondale Women’s Elite MTB team, I have been doing this with a partner since 2014, and in 2018 I am doing it solo. I have goals of building our team identity and exposure. I want us to be able to provide opportunities for our riders to perform and excel as elite women cyclists. Learning and practicing skills is my new jam and it’s igniting this passion for growth within my mountain biking. I’ve been racing pro xc and endurance for 18 years and I’m loving exploring being more dynamic on my bike.
