Hometown: Spokane, WA
Years racing: 1
Why I ride: I get to hang out with a bunch of awesome people while I work out, I am a triathlete (and thus love to bike!) and I love the memories we create not only over race weekends, but throughout the year. I am also training to beat my dad on the bike; one of these days, I am going to beat him up a hill!

"I hate it when that happens" -Jim Mellema (dad)
Other: I have to give a shout-out to my mom, as she's probably the most influential reason as to why I joined the team and started doing a few triathlons! GO MOM!
