Meet the Athlete

Chloe is a tough competitor and master tactician on the bike - not to mention 2016 Olympian. When racing, she draws not only from years of experience –– she started riding seriously in high school –– but also from her bike handling skills to go for the win. To date, Chloe is one of the only American females to earn a World Championship starting spot as a Junior, U23, and Elite competitor. She's the owner and founder of the Stan's-Pivot Pro Team and a veteran of the sport at 32, with experience as a race promoter and a degree in Public Health from the University of Arizona. Chloe's a stubborn transportation advocate who believes in 'riding to your ride' whenever possible. She shares her home in Prescott, Ariz. with a spirited female dog named Hank.

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

When I qualified for my first MTB World Championship team as a Junior in '04 I realized that racing could take me places. I was the last finisher in that race but it didn't demoralize me; I went home inspired and further committed to getting better.

What is something you would tell your younger self if you could go back in time?

Protect your sleep.

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

I grew up fearful of many things--my brain is simply wired to think of worst-case-scenario. Through cycling I learned skills to overcome fear, and with that came confidence. I've since learned that I'm stronger and braver than I ever imagined, and that's a gift.

In 2019 I won my first World Cup Short Track race after planning to do just that. It was a tactical race and I made a risky move. The maxim holds true, you have to risk losing to win.

In 2015 I won my first elite National Championship title in Mammoth exactly ten years after winning my first Junior National Championship at the same venue.
