Christa Thomas

Christa Thomas holds a USAC Cat 2 license and has been mountain biking for three years. 

Christa began mountain biking in 2008. It started off slow – lots of blood, bruises and scars, but for some reason that didn’t stop her.  She is a professional photographer covering the NASCAR series.  Christa is also pursuing a second bachelor’s degree in Health Promotion and plans to continue on and become a registered dietician.

2014 Race Bike:  Specialized StumpJumper

Best Mountain Bike Ride: “All of them! Last year, Jamie and I had a chance to ride in Sedona, AZ. We met amazing locals who took us on a tour of the trails. The riding is so different from North Carolina! It was beautiful and fun and I can’t wait to go back!”

Best Road Ride: “My favorite road ride to date has been in San Francisco. Being able to ride across the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, then climb Mt. Tam and see all of San Fran from high above was amazing.”
