Change is hard. But it can also bring new and exciting opportunities that will allow you to grow.
After being on the CLIF Pro Team for 5 years, I have decided to leave the team to start my own cyclocross project; CX Fever Racing Team Powered by Specialized.
A part of me is super excited about this opportunity, while another part of me is sad about leaving the team.
It’s no secret; I love the CLIF Pro Team. I love everyone on this team, I love the structure, I love the sponsors, and the 5 years I spent on this team were the best of my life.
Quite frankly, I feel like I’ve grown up with this team. I got on the team when I was a 19 years old girl who had raced mountain bikes for 1 season and who didn’t speak very good English. I’m now a 25 years old woman, I’ve been teammate with some of the best cyclists in the world (who also happen to be very cool and mature woman who taught me much about life), we’ve raced MTB and CX all over the world, and my English is still not awesome, but it is much better.
We’ve had euphoric and devastating moments together, and all these moments brought us closer. I was always proud to call these people my teammates, but 5 years later, I’m even prouder to call them my friends.
I owe everyone involved in the CLIF Pro Team an enormous thank you, from the very bottom of my heart. It's been an incredible ride!
You may be wondering, "why change team if you loved your team so much?"
The simple answer is that I have the cyclocross fever and it became too big to contain.
