Meet the Athlete

<p>Lauren began racing in 2009 while at the University of North Texas. After graduation in the winter of 2010, she started teaching high school math and juggled training and racing on the side. In the summer of 2013, she left her teaching job to concentrate on racing with TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank, a team she raced with for the majority of her professional career. When Lauren and her husband Mat made the decision to focus on bike racing full time, she had no idea it would turn into the career she has today. She credits her husband Mat that without his ongoing support and guidance, it wouldn't have been possible.</p>

<p>She's had some great results over the years, including a top ten at La Course and second at the national time trial championships in 2017. However, her most memorable was the 2017 Winston Salem Classic, a race that was won because every teammate sacrificed their own result that day riding to plan and believing that she could win. That year, she went on to compete at the world championships in both the road race and time trial, where she finished in eighth place.</p>

<p>In 2018 she had an early season crash at Santos Tour Down Under that would force her to take some time away from racing. It’s been a slow return to racing at the level she knows that she could, but now she feels stronger than ever and is looking forward to racing outdoors again soon.</p>
