Coryn has been a bike racer for over two decades, getting her start as an 11-year-old. She grew up racing mountain bike, cyclocross, track cycling, and road racing in southern California. Over the years and across the disciplines, she has won over 70 national titles and is currently the American criterium national champion.

She is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to one-day racing or punchy climbs, having won the Tour of Flanders, RideLondon Classique, Trofeo Alfredo Binda, as well as stages at the Giro d’Italia Women, the Women’s Tour, Thüringen Ladies Tour, and the Lotto Belgium Tour.

As much as Coryn loves to race, she cherishes her downtime in the off season when she can relax at home in Pennsylvania with her husband and Tank, their dog who enjoys napping and walking. She and her husband converted a Sprinter van which they use to travel around the U.S. for trips and Coryn’s training. They even have a portable pizza oven for the van, so Coryn, an avid cook, can make homemade sourdough pizza crust anywhere in the country.
