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.
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 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.
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.

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!
Yuen-ying graduated from our women's road cycling clinic in 2017 and has taken out her FIRST EVER race license this year. We are super excited to have her back in our program and helping encourage some new riders to take up their first start lines.
Sarah comes to Watt Riot from the RBC Athlete Development Program. She has been training with Courteney for the last year on the track and is taking on her first races on the road and track in 2018.
Caitlin was one of the first people to register for our women's road cycling clinic in 2017 and we are super happy to support her this year with her FIRST EVER race license. We are super excited to have her on our team and helping encourage some new riders to take up their first start lines.
