It's hard to believe that my four years of high school mountain biking are over. Last weekend on the start line of my last State Championship race, I thought back to my first ever ride with the team, and the spectacular crashing that ensued. I could not have hoped to accomplish anything without the dedication and support of many people along the way. Pictured here are three amazing individuals that have helped shape my high school career and transformed me into who I am today. Vanessa, our very own NorCal league director, is such an unbelievable person. She works to make mountain biking the greatest high school sport to exist, while also making those of us who race feel welcomed and included always. Mark Ferry, the fearless leader of Cycling Development, who has never wavered in his commitment to promoting the sport and advocating for excellence. I met Mark before I joined the team, and he got me so pumped to go out and ride, that the feeling remains to this day. And finally, Jon Hyatt. My primary coach, he has helped me achieve goals I never thought possible. Without his guidance, I would be nothing; his coaching has taught me so much about what it means to work hard and how to stay focused, lessons that will stay with me forever. I cannot thank these people enough for the lasting impact they have had on my high school experience, and I know their influence will sustain itself as I pursue goals outside of high school mountain biking.
