How did you get started working in the bike industry?

Marleen was one of my first sponsors when I raced Downhill bikes right at the beginning. A passion for women's specific bike gear lead to me representing Marleen in the North Island circa 2002. 

What is your favourite part about biking?

The stoke you get riding fast, nailing that technical descent, jump or feature, and coaching riders to further their skills in the sport.

Favourite trails/tracks/rides?

Recently hit up Unhinged near St Arnaud and loved it. An honest Grade 5 steep, rooty technical descent though native beech forest, using a mixture of existing tramping track and purpose built 'tech flow' to finish.

When you're not biking, you are...

Growing food in the garden, creating vegan dishes, hitting the gym and walking my gigantic dog. Or coaching!
