How does FOX contribute to your success?
Being successful means making sure lots of things add up. You can be the fittest person, but if you don't have quality equipment that has been well-maintained, you will be at a disadvantage. FOX provides me with high quality products that use cutting edge technology, and when I have complete confidence in my equipment, all I have to worry about is pedaling faster!

Tell us about your bike/vehicle setup.
On my race bike I use a 32 FLOAT 100 FIT Remote. The FOX remote lockout system is the best out there: it is reliable, easy to use and helps me make the most of my suspension on every course. For training I ride an Orbea Occam with a 32 FLOAT 100 FIT Terralogic fork and a FLOAT RP23 shock on the back.

What else is in your garage?
A motorcycle, my husband's 3 motorcycles and lots of bikes. My newest addition is an Orbea Rallon- my first 6" bike. It has a 36 TALAS 160 FIT RLC fork and a Float RP23 on the back. I have been loving it- it makes me MINUTES faster on the downhills and it climbs pretty well too. I have unleashed my inner free-rider!

What's your training regimen?
Depends on the time of year, but usually a mix of road and mountain. In the fall I add in a little bit of running to mix things up. Last fall I got my first dirt bike, so in the off-season I use that for some "skills training."

Any major injuries, and how did you recover?
I got heat stroke and blacked out during a race in 2008. I don't remember much, but I was taken to the hospital. It took me a lot longer than I was expecting to recover. Since then, I have won a few races in really hot conditions, so I definitely feel like I have conquered some demons!

What's your typical pre-race/event meal? Guilty pleasure?
Pre-race meal is typically cereal with some kind of fruit and yogurt, but I'm not picky. Guilty pleasure? A good donut.

How do you determine which races or events to enter each year?
I discuss my race schedule with my team manager and my coach. Typically I focus on the World Cups, but I really enjoy racing in the US. The US races offer lots of diversity in courses which means you have to be a good all-around rider to do well.

What motivated you to get started professionally?
Curiosity. I wanted to see what I was capable of, and I didn't want to have any regrets later.

What separates you from other professional athletes?
Probably the fact that I got into sports pretty late (I did my first mountain bike race when I was 20). I didn't do sports in high school or college, so I am proof that it's never too late to get started!

What would you be doing if you weren't a professional athlete?
Hmmm... Good question. I should probably get something lined up...

What's the best thing about being a professional athlete?
Getting to ride and race my bike all over the world. Riding your bike is a great way to see new places.

What other sports are you interested in?
Moto GP, motocross

Any advice to the readers dreaming to turn pro?
Do it! You never know until you try.

What are your favorite magazines and websites?
Websites: The Onion, The New York Times, Cyclingnews.com Magazines: Harper's, The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Scientific American, Vanity Fair

Favorite movie quote?
"Rodent's of unusual size? I don't think they exist..."

Who is your hero?
Robert Marchand. The guy who holds the hour record on the track in the 100+ age category. Amazing and inspirational.
