Back for her second season on the team is standout Aussie Peta Mullens. From a young age,Peta craved adventure. She started out as a runner and although she thinks it’s taboo to admit it, she even spent a few years chasing the dream of being a triathlete. As she grew older, she realized that she was a horrible swimmer and that she could explore more of the world on two wheels, so she turned to a life of lycra. At first, she rode around in circles on the track, then
slushed through mud on the mountain bike, then navigated sand traps on the cross’ bike, and now she’s finally settled back into where it all began for her, the road. Through the years she’s claimed ten National Titles, won over 200 races, and represented her country at multiple World Championships but she races towards her 30s, she feels like she still has plenty of memories to create.
