Chloe Woodruff has always loved riding her bike. Growing up in Boulder, Colo., there were plenty of opportunities to do so—but Chloe didn’t fall head-over-wheels with mountain biking until she found herself riding in the desert of Moab, Utah, on a middle school class trip.
As a Junior, Chloe earned two cross-country national championship titles and an expert short track cross-country championship title. She raced with the U.S. team at the World Championships in 2004 and 2005, finishing ninth her last year as a Junior racer.
Chloe continued to dedicate herself to the sport at the Collegiate level. Balancing full-time racing and working toward her Bachelor’s degree in health education, she secured three collegiate D1 cross-country national championships with the University of Arizona Cycling Club.
To date, Chloe is one of the only American females to earn a World Championship starting spot as a Junior, U23 and Elite competitor.
In 2016, she raced the women's cross-country cycling event in the Rio Olympics.
Chloe’s love of racing and riding has only grown, thanks to her husband and coach, Travis (TJ) Woodruff. Now, she’s happily riding trails in the high desert of Prescott, Ariz. with TJ and dog Maja.
You’re sure to find Chloe at local cycling events, exploring new trails, getting lost, playing in the dirt—and encouraging others to do the same.
