Cycling is Tracy's primary mode of transportation and her favorite social activity. Cycling has become an essential part of her life. She gets up almost every morning excited for her next workout, whether it's hard intervals on a smart trainer or an easy, pre-dawn gravel ride. She has made so many great friends and met so many inspiring people through cycling that it seems unreal at times. She is eager to use her opportunity as a Hagens Berman | Supermint Ambassador to continue to grow as a cyclist and to bring other women into a sport that has given so much to her. She fell in love with cycling when she expanded from running to triathlon. In 2015, she was looking for a new challenge, and found riding on local gravel roads provided just the right amount of “scary.” This past season, she shifted her focus away from triathlon to compete in the Michigan Gravel Race Series and the Coast to Coast gravel grinder, a 210 mile gravel ride across the width of Michigan’s lower peninsula. It was immensely rewarding to explore new roads and trails and to have so many opportunities to challenge her fears and improve her technical riding. She's also a huge fan of cyclocross; in 2018, her CX family expanded to include her literal family (her husband and 9 year old son) as well as several members of her newly re-formed women's development team. 2019 will be an exciting year for Tracy full of gravel, triathlon, cyclocross and Hagens Berman | Supermint related adventures.
