Riding Fixed, Up Mountains, with Pros – Ep. 15: Rowena Crest w/ Lael Wilcox
Lael Wilcox exudes positive energy and optimism. A world traveler, world-class athlete, and a world record holder, this native Alaskan started riding in 2008 at age 20 and the rest is history. Widely regarded as the best ultra-endurance rider in the world, her ever-growing resume includes: winning the Trans Am Bike Race in 2016 (Overall) and setting Tour Divide's women's course record. She was the first American to win the Trans Am and also set the overall course record with her time on the Baja Divide route. In Episode 15, we head to Hood River, Oregon with State Bicycle Team rider Céline Oberholzer for a double-summit ultra-endurance episode that includes a special World Record attempt of our own.
