Where is your homebase Veronica?

North Chattanooga, TN

What type of races do you enjoy?

Mountain Biking, Duathlon

What have been your 5 race highlights so far?

I have only been in 3 races this far. Pick your poison 2014 being my first mountain bike race. I was 2nd place and beyond excited! Race #2 was a SERC series at Tsali, I realized quickly I didn’t like that race series. And finally, Night Shift at Enterprise South, receiving 3 place in the co-ed team class with Richie Daigle.

What is a cycling dream you have?

To bike in Nepal!

What has been your best moment with the Velo Vixens so far?

Receiving “most encouraging” last year. It was nice to be awarded something I never really tired to achieve. I’m so thankful my excitement is seen for what it is meant to be!

What is your favorite piece of gear? And why?

My Garmin computer and heart monitor. I’m obsessed with numbers, mostly calorie burn and speed.

What’s your advice for a future Velo Vixen?

My advice would be to not be afraid of joining in with this gang of ladies. We are encouraging, loving, and supportive people. We want nothing more than for us to shine at our brightest!
