Chloe Woodruff (Stan’s NoTubes-Pivot) is headed to Rio de Janeiro next month as part of the USA Cycling team headed to the Olympics.
The 29-year-old Prescott, Ariz. mountain biker has spent the last five years competing against some of the best riders in the world, and now she’ll take them on at the biggest stage of them all.
Although Rio’s man-made course is a bold contrast to the natural environment that mountain bikers are accustomed to riding, the make-up of the Olympic trails are similar to the natural landscape found in Prescott.
Olympic mountain biking events will take place on Aug. 20 and 21.
Afterward, Woodruff hopes to bring back some hardware to the Arizona community that has helped build an elite cyclist.
