TREK Factory World Cup Mountain Bike Race Team
2012 was another break through year for me. Reaching my first World Cup podium in South Africa placing 2nd. (4seconds off the win)
-consistent top 10s for all World Cups
-Being named to the Canadian Olympic women’s team
-4th place at France World Cup just 2weeks before Olympics
-Crashed in training on course in London where I encountered my first injury of my career/life. Only 75hours before the biggest race of my life, despite a freshly broken collar bone I decided I was going to complete what I had set out to do and compete at the Olympic games anyway. Placing a painful 24th of 30.
Canadian Olympian XC cycling.
-2012 Ranked 6th in World cups overall rankings
-2011 Ranked 8th in World Cups overall rankings
I was born and raised on a cattle farm in Brooklin (Durham) Ontario. I’m one of four siblings. Two older brothers and one younger sister,
All of which raced competitively at one time.
For me, it all started on Tuesday after school night group rides with my brothers at 3 Rocks(Durham Forrest) This is where I learnt to ride and my career began.
Engaged to my beloved fiancée (of 8yrs.)/coach of 4yrs.) Adam Morka (Trek Canada) whom I have to thank for blooming/training a “young talent” to the World Stage. He is truly the main reason I am where I am today.
