“Just go out, ride and have fun.”
Katherine Maine started cycling innocently enough, attending the LaRocca Cross-Country Mountain Bike School in the summer of 2009. Although she enjoyed cycling, it was another three years before she started cycling competitively. When she did, she chose to start in the mud by racing cyclo-cross. Using her mountain bike and later a used cyclo-cross bike, she won the Eastern Ontario girls’ under-17 title. Since then she has worked her way up to the professional ranks. When she is not training, Maine spends most of her time outside biking, trail running or XC skiing in the winter.
