I have been riding bikes since fall 2016, when I joined the cycling club at Purdue University. It did not take long for me to in love with the sport. A short season of road racing and I couldn’t wait until cyclocross season started. I found a great community of friends in cx that believed in me and pushed me to take on new challenges. Thanks to them, I raced my first cx season that ended in my first UCI race! Then, I spent spring/summer 2018 diving head first into gravel racing! Gravel and cyclocross are where I’ve found the best adventures and the most fun. It’s hard to believe that 3 years ago, a friend asked me to ride bikes with her and I told her no, because that’s crazy. I can’t wait for more crazy ideas in 2020, like round 3 of DK200!
