Who We Are

Back for a third year, our 2019 team consists of some returning and new athletes who have shown unbridled passion for their sport and community. Our women are committed to promoting cycling and encouraging equality within the sport.

        

Meet our Riders

Erin is the founder of our team, her passion to promote women in the sport has been her driver to build this team. This woman lives and breathes bicycles. If she’s not on a bike, she’s probably working as a race official, coaching a Learn to Ride session or at a board meeting. Erin also races with Team Canadian as a tandem pilot.

Courtenay came to cycling in 2017 as part of the RBC Athlete Training Grounds. Coming from Bobsleigh as a brake(wo)man, Courtenay has turned all of her focus to the track, with her eye on the prize of representing Canada in the near future and adding a new Canada skinsuit to her arsenal.

Peaceful Pedaler

Kendra truly embodies the vision of Watt Riot Cycling. She never attends an event without a smile, she's encouraging to other women on the start line, and she is not so secretly the reason a few of her teammates kept riding after their first year. We are so happy to have her on our team.

Madeline Arpin

Madeline has been racing road and mountain in the Minnesota for years and will be a mentor for the Little Bellas in 2017. We look forward to the day when Madeline lives closer to us, but until then, we will cheer her on from afar and connect with her at every race we can.

Jasper

Jasper

Kara's spirit exemplifies the mission of Watt Riot Cycling. Don't mistake her smiles and pleasantry as a weakness. This strong and fiery woman isn't afraid to speak her mind and have tough conversations around the hurdles female athletes are facing.

Sam

Blades

After 16 years figure skating and 6 years speed skating, Sam decided to come over to cycling for a change of scenery. This woman has a pretty great history of advocacy and is currently a Ride Don't Hide ambassador. We look forward to supporting her through her FIRST EVER race (though she's no stranger to riding in big groups) and her first season training on a bike!
