My name is Larissa Connors, and I became a full time professional mountain biker fairly recently. As most of you already know, I found a lot of success last year racing for Ridebiker Alliance. I was able to podium in some very big races, and made it to the two North American World Cups. Then the craziest thing happened! I was named by USA Cycling as one of the 8 women selected for the Olympic long team, which means I have a shot at qualifying for the ACTUAL REAL FREAKING OLYMPICS!!!! In order to qualify for the Olympics (that word, man, it's so trippy to be thinking about this) I need as high of a Wolrd Cup standing as possible. In 2016 all but 1 of the World Cup races is overseas, and I am working my butt off to get across the pond to those races in Europe. My team supports the crap out of me, sending me to all the major US races and what not, but I am going to need to buy a few expensive plane tickets, and whatnot to get me to those World Cups, and would really appreciate your help!!!
