Meet the Athlete

Kaia grew up in competitive soccer, skiing, and cycling. She grew up skiing in Killington, VT, and found her love for the roads in Marblehead, MA. Kaia’s father would bring her to local races that he was racing at and put her in the little kid races at 5 years old. When Kaia was 9 years old she got put into a local track cycling program around a GoKart track, when she was 11 she started to race cyclocross, and when she was 15 she began racing road.

What is your favorite movie?

My favorite movie is McConkey. It’s about Shane McConkey who was a super free-spirited extreme skier who pushed limits, tested boundaries and became the pioneer of freeskiing. It’s a really inspiring film that pushes you to live each day to the fullest.

What is your favorite quote to live by?

"Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.”
