Courtenay didn’t discover bikes during her senior year of collage when she was looking for a way to cross train for running. She dabbled with some road racing, but wasn’t particularly fond of it. It wasn’t until she discovered cyclocross and mountain biking that she really fell in love with the sport . Courtenay holds both a BS in Exercise Science and an MS in Human Movement and Performance. When she isn’t riding a bike you can find her training clients, reading up on Exercise Science nerdery, and hanging out with her husband and cat, Nugget, at home.
Jamey grew up in Vermont and started racing in the hotbed of New England on the road and cyclocross when he was 12, and has been hooked ever since. He attended the University of Vermont where he earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, while also going pro on the road as well as cyclocross. Over his years of racing, he’s represented the US at Cyclocross World Championships as a Junior, U23 and Elite a total of 8 times. After college, he moved to Utah for a more temperate climate, and is now a happy father of 2 with his wife Carly.
Sofia Gomez Villafane
Sofia was born and raised in the Argentine Patagonia but moved to the United States when she was 12. She discovered mountain biking through the Nor Cal High School Mountain Bike Program and then went on to compete at the collegiate level for Fort Lewis College where she received a Bachelor’s in Exercise Science and a minor in Business Administration. Sofia currently lives in Heber City, UT training to qualify for Tokyo 2020 and working part time for a bean-to-bar chocolate company. Aside from riding and racing her bike, she enjoys taking her dog on hikes, riding her dirt bike, and spending time on nordic and alpine skis.
