What is your favorite place to ride mountain bikes?
Girona, Spain, is my favorite place to prepare for the season because of the good winter weather, people and incredible MTB terrain.
What’s a fun fact most people don’t know about you?
My nickname since college has been “Weazul.” It started when I played a prank on my boyfriend, spiking his feed zone bottle during a local race. The name has stuck ever since.
What’s your favorite snack to enjoy while biking?
I love playing in the kitchen, and I have a huge sweet tooth, so riding my bike is a great opportunity to take advantage of both these things. Homemade banana bread on a long ride is one of my winter favorites.
