What is your name and location?
Katie, Charlotte, NC
What type of cycling do you enjoy?
mountain biking. More specifically, getting my wheels off the ground as much as possible
What is your first cycling memory?
Learning to ride without training wheels in a school parking lot. It was amazing.
Who inspires you to ride? Better yet, why?
All the super fast DH girls like Holly Feniak and Micayla Gatto really inspire me. If they can be faster than most of the male-mountain biking population, then why can’t I?
What has been your best moment on the bike so far this year?
Every moment on my bike is awesome, but probably the most memorable moment on my bike so far this year was crashing in a loamy, off camber turn. Whenever I picked my bike back up, the fork had worms all over it.
Tell us what you ride
As if I don’t talk enough about my bike lol! My baby is my Banshee Wildcard. I love it to death and I ride it everywhere. I also have a vintage Raleigh road bike that spends most of its time in my garage. I can’t stand road biking.
