Unfortunately Laura was hit by a

car while riding in November, 2007, and is now working

her way back into shape for the 2008 season.  NOTHING GETS HER DOWN!

When she’s not training and racing, Ishe enjoys going to

church, riding her long board, and baking cookies. 


Laura recommends the Flatiron Athletic Club for chlorinated swimming and weight lifting but also likes the Boulder Reservoir for open water swimming.  Her favorite place to ride is any mountain in Boulder.  She’s a maniac.  Admits she likes to ride up as much as down!  Her favorite run spots include the Marshall Mesa, just south of Boulder. At Teller Farms, on the Boulder Creek Trail, and in the winter she runs the stairs in front of the Westminster Rec Center.

Laura’s top workout bands are the Foo Fighters, Rolling Stones, Kanye West, Incubus and Trina.


Laura's a tough chick so be sure to check out her favorite spots.  Be sure to wave if you see a hot blonde on a bike go flying by (uphill).
