Clara Honsinger grew up riding bikes on the trails outside of her hometown of Ashland in Southern Oregon. She found racing – muddy, gritty, racing – when a high school teacher introduced her to cyclocross. Six years later, Clara won the US National Cyclocross Championships in Tacoma, Washington. She repeated the feat late last year, part of a breakthrough ‘cross season.

While Clara’s experience on the road is more limited than her experiences in the mud, she is confident that she will add value to her team, especially during the Spring Classics. She hopes to improve her pack skills – holding her space and moving through the peloton – throughout her sophomore road season.

In addition to a year-round race schedule, Clara manages a full course load at Oregon State University where is pursuing her nutrition degree.

Clara likes working on bikes almost as much as she likes riding them. She has worked as a mechanic in a bike store in Oregon and loves talking shop with the mechanics that take care of her bikes.
