US Grand Prix of Sprinting

The weekend is over, and all I want to do is sleep. This was my second UCI event, (the first being the 2013 Pan American championships), and the keirin was first. My favorite event, and my target for this years world cups. Riders from the US, Guatemala, Ecuador, and Mexico were present for the women. [...]

Summer Camp Part Three: Marymoor Grand Prix

Patience. It's that thing I'm experiencing as I put one quarter in at a time through the laundry machine slot,  awaiting the spew of water that will eventually fill and wash my clothing. Or, as I wait for the water to boil so I can have my morning cup of coffee. Or, as I ride [...]

CMU Collegiate Weekend

That was the goal. I have made some incredible friends, and incredible teammates for life. Robin, Holly, Elle, [...]

We are sad to see this happen, and stayed up last night waiting [...]

Nature Valley Day 1: Stages 1 and 2

Wisconsin…Round two for 2011

Blue bird skies in Denver, and then overcast in Minnesota. But isn't that how it always is? It seems that the rain has been following me everywhere lately, [...]
