Lauren is excited to announce she will stay one more year with Hitec Products Women’s Team. The norwegian team offers Lauren a great environment to continue woking towards her cycling goals and she looks forward to repaying the team for their support in 2015;
“I am very happy I am staying with Hitec in 2015, I had a difficult year with an injury this year and Karl, the manager, has been very supportive and helpful and I really hope to repay the team’s support with results in 2015”
Lauren will follow a similar race schedule to the last few years however she hopes to mix things up a little with some new experiences and hopefully a personal challenge of an MTB race or two. Lauren is currently recovering from surgery on her iliac artery but hopes to be firing for the Spring Classics come March;
“I love the Spring races! They are just so hard, they show who is the strongest and there is no where to hide!”
Looking to 2015, Lauren’s goals will include Worlds selection to compete in Richmond come September but before then Lauren hopes to ride herself into the top 10 on a consistent basis as well as the top step on the podium a few times in 2015. Racing and training with an injury for the past few years has taught Lauren a new appreciation for patience and commitment and she can’t wait to get into 2015 to show everyone but most importantly herself just how far she can go!
