What the 2020 season taught me
I'm incredibly lucky for the instruction I've received in the last two seasons. And, I've wrestled all year with translating what I know into action. As I wind into the off-season, I took a few minutes to reflect on some of the season's challenges (bike selection, confidence, wrestling with motivation and why I ride) and some of this season's learnings. By the end of the season, with help from my coaches, husband, and riding friends -- and a literal six-week sprint working with an incredible sports psychologist in addition to my regular counselor -- I've remembered why I ride. And it feels SO GOOD.

Are you "too slow" for track riding?
Is there such a thing as "too slow" for track days? As a rider coach, and a rider who's struggled with increasing speed myself, even I have to answer that question: Sometimes. But the rider you are today isn't the rider you'll always be: with work, most riders can bring up their pace without sacrificing safety. It may mean you've got work to do on your braking confidence; and it may mean you've got work to do on the grey matter between your ears. With the help of head instructor at Champ School, Nick Ienatsch, I'll share some of my own experience with working to overcome my "imposter syndrome" on the track -- and Nick shares some thoughts for riders who either FEEL, or have been told, they're "too slow" on the track.

How Champ School Changed My Work Life
In my day job, I'm a strategy consultant. I help organizations and executives figure out what's most important and how to accomplish it to improve their businesses. I don't usually think about my work life and my motorcycle life having much overlap, but two days at Champ School changed that. Forever. Hear a bit about what I learned at Champ School -- and, what I've learned since -- on and off the track.

Welcome to The Moto Curious
For some people, getting into motorsports is as easy and natural as breathing. And then there are the rest of us. This is a quick introduction to how I wound up here -- after nearly 18 years in the saddle -- an avid rider, a track day instructor, and a moto-enabler for people who've always wanted to ride (or ride more, or ride more avidly).
