Growing up in Santa Cruz, Josie was surrounded by amazing trails through redwood trees with views of the Pacific. But it wasn’t until the pandemic that she was able to spend enough time riding those trails seriously with her dad to discover the true joys of mountain biking. Joining local teams she progressed quickly, and began competing in both cross-country and enduro events throughout northern California. 

You can usually find Josie shredding steep, loose, fast trails of Santa Cruz on her Jamis Hardline. But these days she’s attending college in southern California, and finding all new trails to explore. With an undeniable enthusiasm for riding bikes, she hopes to use her passion to encourage more girls to take up the sport.
