This week I am joined by junior multi discipline rider from Canada, Ava Holmgren.
Ava is one of five children and grew up riding the local mountain bike trails with her family before she started racing locally and then across North America.
Following the 2020 Covid lockdowns, Ava moved up to the Junior category and started competing in Cyclocross World Cups in the USA before making her first trip to compete in some European racing.
Ava is now 2 time Junior Pan America Cyclocross champion and the first Canadian rider to win a cyclocross World Cup in Europe. After finishing 2nd at the 2023 Junior Cyclocross World Champs in Hoogerheide, Ava has been competing on the road and in Junior Mountain bike World Cups.
Ava will be moving up to the Under 23 category in cyclocross this September and I'm looking forward to being able to watch her races and her progression in the Elite category.
