Katie Holden Joins Liv/giant!
February 11, 2013
Not only does 2013 mean a new partnership for Katie, it also means a shift from racing to endeavors focused around trips, events and media. “I am incredibly excited about this,” exudes Katie, “it basically takes my strengths and everything that I am super passionate about and puts them together into a package that is who I am from the core. Travel has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember, so being able to keep exploring the world with my bike, connecting with people and communities along the way is incredible. I am excited to share my adventures, and inspire women to try new things and push themselves to step outside their comfort zones.”
Katie is already off on a new adventure for Liv/giant, headed to Jamaica with her Trance X1 W to ride and shoot with noted photographer Ian Hylands. “When I go out for a ride, it is really important that my bike perform on the rough stuff as that is my favorite thing to ride. The Trance X1 W works because it pedals efficiently and it lets me ride whatever my heart desires...steeps, gnar, jumps, drops.” says Katie, “It is pretty awesome to be able to jump on my bikes right out of the box and get loose. The geometry is spot on and the Maestro suspension feels so good!”
Since Katie travels so often, she encourages you to reach out if you see she is in your area, “I love nothing more than riding with new people in new places,” says Katie, “I want hear from you.” Watch the Liv/giant USA Facebook page for upcoming rides and events.
