HARRIET OWEN

Harriet joined the team mid-season in 2018; she returns for another year racing full-time in the US. She has been racing since the age of 11 years old and turned pro in Europe in 2015. She took a year out of racing (and riding!) in 2017 and returned to racing in the US at the start of 2018 and has fallen in love with racing all over again. She loves anything fast and thrives in a crazy big bunch sprint. In her spare time she works for Trek Bicycle Corporation but also loves to spend her time at local coffee shops or exploring new areas!
