2017 WOMEN'S RACE TEAM

NATALIE CABALLERO

Natalie kills with kindness, on and off her bike. She'll kindly drop everyone as she flies up a mountain or hill and she'll kindly make sure everyone feels welcome and included. She has a sincere commitment to advocating for women and making the world a better place. She's the ultimate team player and you can always count on her to have the team's interest at heart! Natalie is a gem of a cyclist and person!

SONYA MANSON

Marathon runner turned bike racer, Sonya has always had endurance and dedication on the race course. She's a team player, ready to attack the peloton at any moment to support the team strategies. She trains hard, constantly growing stronger with each race. Both on and off the race course, she's ready to brighten others day with her contagious smile and humor. As a mother, friend, and teammate, she shares her positive energy and encourages those around her.

NIKKI ULUG

Strong defines this aspiring athlete. Her love for riding bikes is evident, she brings it on the track and road and leaves her competition in the dust while encouraging and supporting her teammates. Adventurous, smart, and kind we wish her much success in her first year as a science teacher!


ALLEN TURNER - DIRECTOR DE SPORTIF

Coaching is said to be about taking an athlete to a level where they cannot take themselves. Our teacher and mentor in all things cycling, Allen offers his time and experience to the team. Allen has united this group of racers, many who had never met before, from individual riders to a strong and supportive team. The sky is the limit for the ladies of Violet Crown! Thank you Allen!


YEN NGUYEN - TEAM CAPTAIN

Yen is a very inspirational lady and an incredible leader for our team. She trains hard and races smart. She is an outright kind person and I feel proud to call her my teammate!


APRIL MCCLURE

April's dedication is apparent in everything she does, from friendship to parenting to training and racing. Whenever I wake up feeling sluggish, I'm immediately motivated by the workout April has already completed...and I get up at 5:30 a.m.! April is one badass woman who inspires me both on and off the bike.


EMILY TRAHAN

Feisty firecracker Emily got her start racing in the dirt and proved to be just as tenacious on the pavement. When she's not eating hills for breakfast, Emily is an avid yogi, teacher, and mom to a budding young cyclist.


AMANDA EID

A runner turned cyclist, Amanda, is a power house on two wheels. She's a loyal teammate, ready to help you cross the line or win a podium spot for Violet Crown.


KIMBER ROTH

Kimber is one of the most kind-hearted and supportive individuals. Though her strengths and achievements are numerous, both on the bike as a time trial champion, and in her professional life as a business owner, she is also humble and works on her areas of weakness to improve her own abilities. She is a patient, loving mom, leads by example, and she's an excellent role model for young women athletes.


FLORA LANG
Flora is an amazing, versatile racer. She is very humble in her abilities, but when racing, she can power up a hill or sneak through the peloton for a win or top spot. Flora is very dependable and always there for her team. Great asset to our team!


CECILIA VICHIER-GUERRE

Cecilia never misses the chance for a strong finish sprint; winding up from the back then sprinting to the front without anyone noticing. She puts the same dedication into her training and racing as she does in studying medicine.
