2014 Team

DH

Fenton, MI

I first tried mountain biking 5 years ago to cross train for running, but really got into when I met my, now husband, 4 years ago. We started off riding just for something to do together, I enjoyed the fitness aspect of
cross country, and he was interested in the downhill scene. Fast forward 4 years, and we now both race downhill competitively on the east coast, and ride cross country at home (not much downhill to find in SE
Michigan). We now have a family team of 4 who love to ride and race together. I am especially looking forward to watching my two 8 year olds race this season with us. I love the mountain bike community, and all of the amazing friends I have met through it!

Qualicum Beach, BC

Hi! I am Denise Hook. I am a mom, special educator and outdoor enthusiast. I have two children ages 20 and 24. I have worked in the field of special education for over 30 years and am currently an instructor at UVIC for the Special Education Certificate and Diploma Program and a private consultant for special education. I rode my first “trail” at 44, four years ago, and fell in love with mountain biking. It has become a passion that I am thrilled to pursue through racing – my only wish is that I had discovered it sooner. I have never raced so this will be a new and exciting experience with the support of my partner saying, “Go For It!” When I’m not out on my bike I can be found rock climbing, skiing, mountaineering or hiking.

Interval, NH

Every year I believe is better and better for biking. I fall in love with it more and more. This year I was so excited to actually ride on a brand new Specialized Status II. It was like going from a Pinto to a Ferrari. It’s amazing how self-gratifying biking can be every single ride. You hit that drop a little quicker, you nail that rock garden, or just had an awesome ride all together. I had the pleasure of representing the Muddbunnies in 2013, and it opened my eyes to what an incredible community the biking world ¡s. I raced in some Eastern States Cup races, Pin the trail at Attitash, and the Red Jersey Races. It made me want to share this great hobby…passion, even more, with other ladies. In 2014 I really want to get womens riding together. I want to see a chapter of Muddbunnies on the east coast!

Lynnwood, WA

Seattle has been my home for most of my life. I worked at a local custom road bike shop for 7 years where I met and married my soul mate. My husband very patiently taught me how to mountain bike and helped me develop my skills. I have been hooked ever since. Each year I work to improve my mountain biking techniques, speed, and confidence. I joined the Muddbunnies and was pleasantly surprised to find so many friendly female shredders to ride with. I have always ridden with groups of guys, so it is refreshing to ride with women in an encouraging atmosphere. I hope to expand my biking abilities and fun experiences by racing for the first time this season with the Muddbunnies!

Enduro

North Vancouver, BC

I think bikes were encoded in my DNA: I was bit with the bike bug before my first birthday, and happily graduated to my own two wheels as soon as I could. My first love was road biking but a few years ago I discovered that mountain biking is the really the sweet spot as far as combining fitness, skill and adrenaline goes. I tended toward the endurance/xc aspect of riding more naturally but I bought my first “big bike” last year and am loving Enduro and bike park riding more and more. I love racing for forcing me out of my comfort zone mentally and physically and have decided to really push myself by signing up for BCBR this year.
