Courtesy of Chloe Woodruff Growing up in Colorado, I had my choice of outdoor sports, but I'm lucky to have found one that turned out to be a great fit for me. Being on a bike has helped me connect with others and taught me independence at an early age. I didn’t have a car until college, so my bike was my transportation and my ticket to explore new places. Having that freedom was very valuable growing up. Advertisement - Continue Reading Below I signed my first pro contract as a college freshman in 2007. Those tough early years helped me learn a lot about myself and are a driving force in what motivates me today. In 2014, I learned that Stan’s NoTubes wanted to support a U.S. woman in her pursuit of making the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The goal seemed like a long shot but I put together a proposal and budget for a team of two—and that’s how the Stan’s-Pivot Pro Team began.

1. Up and at it – what is your morning routine? My standard day will see me wakening up around 7.30 or 8am when I immediately hit the snooze button (maybe twice). I love to sit and scroll through whatever notifications I have on my phone before I get out of bed, stick on some music and start to mentally prepare myself for the day. I’ll check my diary, make some toast (if I’m not running late), grab my laptop and bag and make my way over to my studio in the Duncairn Arts Centre. 2.
