How did you start racing? When I met my husband he was racing cyclocross.  I went to a few of the races and cheered him on, and it looked like so much fun I decided to give it a try.  I was hooked from the first race.
Number of years racing? 2
Which disciplines do you race? Cyclocross, road, would like to try mountain biking
Which is you favorite? Cyclocross!

I race because it’s fun.  It’s fun pushing myself faster than I think I can go.  It’s fun meeting other racers and building a cycling community.  It’s fun dissecting a course and figuring out the best way to do a section.  There is always something new to learn.  And racing is also a great place to fail miserably, get up, and try again.
