Role Model
Trixie Mattel. She doesn’t ride bikes, but she wears some good wigs.

Why did you decide to join Koochella?
Who could say no to riding bikes with these badass babes? I was totally set on just doing fun rides and management for the team, but then I took the track class at the end of the summer. It turns out, riding on the velodrome was just TOO FUN.

What drew you to the team?
Honestly, I just kept falling asleep on the couch in our (mine and SaBo’s) apartment during team meetings until one day I decided to stay awake and eavesdrop.
