LAURA VAN GILDER
No doubt about it. Laura Van Gilder (@lvgbike) is the winningest North American female road cyclist of all time, with more than 400 career wins and countless podium placings: Over 400 career victories, 4 time World Team Member (2 Road /2 Cyclocross), US National Criterium Champion (2002), 2x US National CX Series Champion. And she's still at it!
Sunny has been racing cyclocross since 2008, when she first gracefully leapt over a barrier at a Cross Crusade in Oregon, eventually going on to compete in World Cup events, and consistently ranking among the Top 50 racers in the world. As a cyclocross racer, she is ironically known for her running ability, which in 2017 carried her to a pair of wins for the Van Dessel Factor Team at the Mt. Taylor Cross Cup – literally running away from the competition on the flooded mud flats of the course.
Cassandra nows how to get to the front of a race on a road bike or cyclocross bike. A threat in the Northeast Cyclocross Series, look for to boogie around every UCI cyclocross race in the New England Area on her Full Tilt Boogie.
Caroline Mani is a French cyclocrosser, who honed her bike-handling skills as a former motocross racer. Multiple time French National Cyclocross champion, she also won the silver medal at the 2016 UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships in Zolder, Belgium and took the Title Belt at the 2017 Cyntery Hurtland Cyclocross race in Tulsa, OK. Her socks, boasting sewn images of her two adorable dogs, are just short enough to be legal under the new UCI sock length standard. Contact her through Instagram @piloucaro to get your pair.
