Biography

Most memorable race: Patterson Pass RR 2010. The suffering was epic. It took me a week to recover. Butterfly Crit W4 2009. My team swept the podium. One of the most fun races I've ever done.

Off-the-bike hobbies: Cooking, hiking, reading.

What got me into cycling: Necessity. My parents lived far away from the last bus stop and had no car for years.

Day job: Estuarine ecologist

Where I grew up: Denmark

What got me into racing: Curiousity and Death ride training made me join a bike club. Other club members talked me into racing and I was immediately addicted.

Number of years with the team: 7

Favorite ride: Hicks Rd. Los Gatos

Words to live by: You will learn as long as you live.

Best team moment: I have several and can't choose. 2014 Giro di San Francisco where ultimate team work lead to the win of the break and the field sprint. Valley of the Sun 2012 when Molly and Lisa launched a beautiful lead out and we ruined Specialized lululemon's plans. Pescadero Road Race and Sacramento Grand Prix 2011 - dots ruled both races. Menlo Park Crit 2012 where we launched the ultimate lead out. Watching a team mate crush the opponents at the finish, after having raced like a team makes all the suffering 100% worth it.

Cycling accomplishments: Winning the three W4 races that were part of the Memorial Day Omnium in 2009. These races were my 2nd, 3rd, and 4th races ever. 2nd place a Valley of the Sun Crit 2012. Being the last person in the money at Redlands 2012

Favorite way to consume Cold Beverages: When I'm really thirsty.

My cycling hero(s): Jens Voigt

Favorite post-race food: In 'n' Out Cheeseburger

Top lifetime accomplishments: Finishing my PhD at UC Santa Cruz

Music that gets me going before a race: Not sure, I hate warming up
