+Junior Racing Career Highlights2002-2005

2002

Chloe’s experience at her first-ever race, the 24 Hours in Moab with a Junior Women’s squad, had many ups and downs, but served as a good introduction to the sport of cross-country mountain bike racing. The sport requires intense physical exertion, mental focus and that riders pummel themselves over grueling terrain. Which is challenging for everyone. At the lowest point, Chloe pushed her bike in the middle of the night, in tears, thinking, “This is the dumbest thing ever.” Things got better once the sun came up and she and her teammates rode on to their first podium finish. That is, if they hadn’t pulled the most rookie mistake of all: not showing up for your podium.

2004

UCI Mountain Bike World Championship team member, Les Gets, France. Her bike, a 1996 Trek 8700 with V-Brakes, received quite a bit of attention at the race, which she thought was pretty cool.

Junior X National Champion, Mammoth Lakes, Calif.

2005

Finished 4th in her first road race at the Junior 17-18 Road Nationals in Park City, Utah (on a borrowed bike, too). Chloe experienced her first road crash and subsequent road rash the day before the race. During the race, she dropped her chain in the final 2km while battling with another racer. The racer, instead of attacking immediately, waited for Chloe to put her chain back on and resume racing―then attacked. This gesture of sportsmanship left a huge impression on Chloe.

UCI Mountain Bike World Championship team member, Livigno, Italy, 9th place finish.

Junior X National Champion, Mammoth Lakes, Calif.

Expert Short Track National Champion, Mammoth Lakes, Calif.

Placed first at Pro Short Track in Fontana, Calif. This was her first time she stuck with the lead group in this format of race and she surprised even herself with the victory.

Signed with Crankbrothers. Raced around the globe with teammate Judy Freeman through 2013.
