2014 Race Bike: Eriksen 650B hardtail
Why race? " I have traditionally been a road rider and raced aggressively on the road during the 2008, 2009, and 2010 seasons, primarily focusing on criterium racing. I took a few years off racing to take advantage of career opportunities and to let a severe pinched nerve in my neck heal. I have been married for 4 years to my long-time friend and riding companion, John Koury. My husband has encouraged my discovery of mountain biking and we have increasingly enjoyed trail riding together. In 2014, I look forward to advancing my mtb technical skills and challenging myself in cross country races and team relay/duo endurance events."
