2021 will be my first year racing with CAMS-Basso, and I can’t wait! I am originally from North Carolina, USA, but I’ve spent the last 6 years in Boston, Massachusetts. I started racing my first year of grad school in 2015 for my university team, MIT. I instantly fell in love with it and joined a local club team to race more. I quickly progressed through racing categories, and I won two collegiate (university) national championships: the criterium and the team time trial in 2018 and 2019. I also raced national level and UCI races around the US, and I was selected to represent the US national team at the Colorado Classic in 2019, which was an amazing experience. I recently moved to Loughborough, England, so I’m really excited to race around the UK and Europe with the team in 2021!

Favourite Race: Colorado Classic or Cascade Cycling Classic

Favourite Food: Ice cream!

Favourite warm up tunes: ‘Woman’ by Kesha, ‘Run the world (girls)’ by Beyonce, ‘That’s my girl’ by Fifth Harmony… sensing a theme? 😊

What are you looking forward to most in 2021: I’m just excited to race again (hopefully)!! I am really looking forward to getting to know all of my new teammates and to race around the UK and Europe with them!
