A bit more about Kenda
1) Age – 43
2) Current category and what disciplines – Cyclocross – Cat 2, Mountain Bike – Cat 1, Road – Cat 3
3) Goals – Always trying to be faster, but I also love to share my enthusiasm for cyclocross, often with unsuspecting people. One of this season’s goals is a podium finish at Nationals.
4) A fun fact about Kenda – One of the first times I went mountain biking was around 2000 when my now-husband took me to Tiger Mountain. I was riding a fully rigid GT with rim brakes, wearing jean shorts, and tennis shoes. I don’t remember how hard it was riding up, but I definitely remember how sore my arms were from my death grip on the brakes coming down.
