About Emma: I’m a neo-pro living in Richmond, VA. I love spending time in the mountains, cooking, eating, and drinking good coffee. A fun fact about me is that I was actually born in England, and lived in 3 other countries (Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Sweden) before moving to the US when I was 7.
No racing for me this year due to covid-19, but some 2019 race highlights include a 7th place at US Pro Road Nationals, a 4th place finish at the Redlands Bicycle Classic Road Race, a 6th place GC finish at Joe Martin Stage Race, and a course record at the Green Mountain Stage Race ITT.
// Q&A with Emma
I have always been drawn to endurance sports. Growing up, I was a competitive swimmer. I picked up running and cycling in college and competed internationally in triathlons, but fell so in love with cycling that after a few years I decided to focus on that exclusively.
Anywhere in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
Favorite Cycling Moment (so far):
Setting the course record in the Green Mountain Stage Race ITT.
To learn as much as I possibly can from the talented women that I am lucky to call my teammates! Be at the pointy end of the race when the team needs me, gain experience from every race I do, and be a good ambassador for the sport.
When not riding, I like to...:
Favorite warmup song:
Probably anything from Today’s Top Hits.
Favorite post-ride food:
Depends, but usually any sort of baked good paired with some protein does the trick.
Any advice to future // aspiring cyclists?
Keep the passion alive. If you don’t love it, it’ll be tough to stick with it.
I was born in England, and lived in three other countries - Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Sweden - before moving to the US. I have dual citizenship in England and the US!
