After swimming and running competitively for most of my childhood my attention was captured by Triathlon in high school. During that time I made 3 state teams and won the 16-19 Age Group Sprint Distance Triathlon World Championships in 2009.
After 2009 I made the decision to focus on cycling with the goal of making it to the highest level of the sport. In 2014 I turned professional with MTN Qhubeka, which later became Team Dimension Data after it was granted World Tour status in 2016. I was fortunate enough to ride some of the biggest races in the world with this team including 2 Vuelta Espanas and the big Spring Classics like De Ronde van Vlaanderen. I also placed Top 20 at Road Worlds in 2016.
In 2019 I’m excited to be returning to my passion for Triathlon. I’ve missed the variety and the challenge that only the combination of three sports can provide. In my first professional IRONMAN 70.3 in Barcelona in 2019, I set the bike course record and finished 6th overall. I hope to carry that success even further in the future.
