I won the 2017 ITU Cross Triathlon World Championship Elite title. I dedicate this to all of the ladies in my 40+ age-category and beyond. Your best races are not behind you -unless you are certain you have done everything possible to maximize your potential already. Not everyone sees the potential they have and takes the opportunity. I hope to continue demonstrating being in your 40s is an advantage, not an obstacle.
I am ITU Cross Triathlon World Champion for the second time.
After a perfect day at the Penticton ITU Multisport World Championship I took my fifth world title in off-road racing. Mountain biking allowed me to become a professional athlete and triathlon gave me a viable career. I have so much gratitude for everyone at XTERRA, the ITU, and all of the local off-road bike, run, and triathlon race organizers for supporting off-road racing. Thank you!
