Julie Lockhart Election Statement


Julie Lockhart
Cyclo-cross Committee - Masters Athlete

In my first year of racing, I was introduced to CycloCross in an NEBC CX clinic. I had no CX bike, so I went and rode my husbands relaxed fit bike. I had a blast. So much to learn, and a new bike to cobble together from parts in the basement. So much encouragement and help from great people.  I began racing in beginner fields and had such a good time that I tried to get all my friends to join me. I met great women and made terriffic friends. I began racing 'Mid-Atlantic' because they had Women 45+, and I felt that offered a more even playing field. I advocated for more fields of 45+ and was moderately successful ... More women were racing CX! I love to encourage women to have fun and race CX with their husbands.
