I am currently the oldest Internationally classified female Paracylist in the USA and I believe the oldest ACTIVE female worldwide. I ride an UPRIGHT Trike in the T-2 category. I was introduced to Flo Cycling via the podcast and I learned so much about everything from the podcasts. However, my Trike requires custom rear wheels so I never considered Flo Wheels until I met someone at a TT in New Mexico and he LOVED his Flo Wheels and let a teammate borrow a pair (she is a paracyclist who rides a regular bike. I had just come back from qualifying at the World Cup and spent hours listening to all your Podcasts on the drive. I decided I wanted to try FLO wheels. Most Paracylists are on a very tight budget and can’t afford the other names in wheels due to travel and equipment expenses. I LOVE listening to your Podcast and learned so much about wheels and many other things. I am NOT super fast due to some recent challenges but currently back in training with a coach. The USOC told me I was too old and then in 2018 won a Silver medal at the National Championships. I train at Kristen Armstrong’s new gym in Boise and will be doing indoor training with her and her staff in Stages cycles through the winter. So, this old gal expects to surprise a LOT of people this spring. I am part of Challenged Athletes Foundation and a big advocate for them. This will NOT interfere with the FLO cycling team. I currently have a Hed front wheel and very old Zipp wheels in the back. Since I have custom hubs getting new wheels for the rear is very expensive. I was looking at getting a Flo Wheel for the front. The Paracyling community is not that familiar with FLO wheels and I can be a great representative for that commitment as well as the Masters community.
I am Not currently on Twitter and don’t use Instagram much (still learning) but I am very active on Facebook.

I am excited about all the possibilities this year!!
