Meet the Athlete

Keira began cycling at a young age through a local triathlon club, and continued to race triathlons for four years at the national level. After moving to Boulder, Colorado in 2014, Keira found her love for cyclocross and the cycling community in general, and began to focus on cycling. She was introduced to mountain biking with the Colorado High School Cycling League, earning a State Championship Title, and began to race all different types of bikes year-round. During 2021, Keira had a successful cyclocross season that culminated in a European Race trip with the National Team and a spot in the 2022 Cyclocross World Championships, where she finished 12th. As she progresses in her career, Keira will continue to develop as an athlete while pursuing a career in health science. She is also passionate about making cycling more accessible and promoting equity in the sport.

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

I was as very active kid, and cycling gave me a healthy outlet for all my energy and intensity. Cycling has made me into a determined and independent person, who always strives for a challenge. I also learned that community is a huge part of any sport, even individual sports like cycling.

What are your pre-race rituals?

I love to listen to music when I warm up. Sometimes it's rap, sometimes it's pop, sometimes it's spanish salsa music. I'll listen to anything, as long as it has a good beat and gets me pumped up.
