Meet the Athlete

Felicia’s father was a professional BMX racer in his youth and showed Felicia the sport at the age of 4. She quickly gained a lot of love for the sport and won her first national title at age 6 and first World title at age 9. Felicia ended her amateur career in Copenhagen, Denmark winning her 10th World title. She then found herself back on top of the podium winning the Time Trial and Race World Championships titles for both of her Junior Elite years making it a total of 14 World Title. Her next ambition was to attend Marian University on a cycling scholarship, which she graduated with honors in 2018. With only focusing on BMX, 2019 has been her best year racing Elite Women. In 2019, she finished both USABMX and World Cup series overall 2nd in the World. She also became the 2019 US Elite Women’s National title and Pro of the year!

Growing up, how did youth sports impact who you are today?

Growing up my father signed me up in as many sports as he could find. Growing up I raced Snowmobiles, played softball, track & field, volleyball, basketball, floor hockey, gymnastics, and bmx racing. I think competing in all of the sports kept me extremely busy and taught me lessons of hard work at a young age.

What is one of the most pivotal experiences you've had that helped get you to where you are today?

Winning my first Junior Elite World title in Birmingham, England (2012) was one of my first experiences that started to shape my life of pursuing a collegiate and professional bmx career.

What is your spirit animal?

Koala because outside of training and racing, I love to sleep.
