I feel free and comfortable when I’m on my bike. –Coryn Rivera, from Team Sunweb
A 24 year old from Tustin, California, Coryn Rivera became the first American to win the Tour of Flanders this year. Her first ride was at age 8 on the back of her parent’s tandem bike. She started cycling on her own at age 9, but didn’t get much experience riding on the road until she got her driver’s learning permit at age 15. Turning Pro at age 16, she’s won 71 US National Championships. That’s not a typo! And now she is performing at the world’s highest level. Coryn also won the RideLondon Classic this year with her phenomenal sprinting skills. Check out her Road Bike Training Tips on Liv Cycling. What an amazing journey. What a cool sport.
