“Taking the risk to devote yourself to something that scares you and challenges you, that’s what it’s about.”

A Colorado native, Erin grew up running, hiking, skiing, and mountain biking in the Rocky Mountains. While studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Colorado, Erin was on the CU Cycling, Mountain Biking, and Triathlon teams. She now lives in Boulder with her husband, Ari, and two yellow labs, Tucker and Riley. Erin works  as an engineering project manager for a biomedical device company.

Erin decided to try racing mountain bikes in 2006. After a few races as an Expert, Erin got her Pro upgrade. She’s steadily improved since then with 2012 being a break-out season when Erin was selected to be on the World Championship team. After this amazing experience, Erin decided to start focusing more on being an elite bike racer…which meant sadly no more CrossFit, no more fall marathons (running), and more traveling to National XC events. The shift in focus paid off and Erin has steadily risen through the ranks to become a top member of the US National Team.
