After enough mountain bike rides with the family you begin to start to like it. Emily has an interesting story as to how she got into racing her mountain bike. It's a combination of growing up in a family that's passionate about cycling, and nordic ski racing. Whatever the combination is it's proven to be a good one. Balancing an education in engineering, Emily will be looking to hit all the big home races this year, based out of Whistler, mixing it up at the local Loonies and Marathon XC events.
