Motivation: "I know I can always be a stronger rider, so that and my future golas for the sport motivate me on and off the bike."
Best advice you received from a coach when you were starting out: "To have fun and not be too hard on myself because at the end of the day, it's just riding a bike."
What is your best cycling memory: "When I was about 10 my Dad and I rode our tandem to our sailboat on Lake Champlain, which is about 10 miles from our house. It just about took us the whole day but it was so much fun and I will never forget it."
Hero/Role Model: Mikaela Shiffrin
Cycling & Personal/Career Goals: "I want to podium at Junior Worlds next year and become a strong elite level sprinter. I am also going into my junior year of high school, so I want to focus on my grades and get into a good college or university."
First Involvement in Cycling: "I began cycling competitively when I was 8 years old as a way to stay in shape for ski racing, but I have been riding for as long as I can remember. My Dad got me into the sport at a young age and has always supported my racing."Did you know: Julia loves artwork and takes many different courses in school.
