The MTB Journey Begins

 

This is where it all started, a crash and a few goats!

In 2011 my mom wanted me to learn the basic skills of mountain biking. She signed me up for a local team called Young Riders. In preparation for the team we planned to ride the Rail trail in Park City, the trail was roughly 21 miles round-trip. Even though we checked the weather, a cold front moved in faster than expected, as a small 40 pound 6-year-old it was almost impossible for me to pedal in the harsh head wind but I didn’t stop. After the ride I learned the most important part of mountain biking, never give up, no matter the situation!

I started competing in local fun kids races in 2016 which is where I discovered my love of racing. I now compete in 4-5 series a year and have a lot of races to promote my sponsors. I am always telling people about my sponsors and how they have helped me.

I am also on the Park City Nordic team, competing in skate and classic races. I cross train in-between with cross-fit, to enhance my performance. 

GOALS

My goals this year, were to challenge myself, and improve my racing. I moved up to compete in the men’s sport division, to help improve my speed and endurance. I was also invited to move up, 2 years early, and ride with the U19 riders from Summit Bike Club which will further my goals!
