About me and my goals
I believe in living a life that sets your soul on fire. Riding and racing mountain bikes does exactly that for me. The people I meet and the places my bike takes me is incredible. I have only been racing cross country mountain bikes for a short amount of time but have some big plans.
I have always been involved in a range of sports growing up; karate, netball, tennis, boxing and more recently triathlon. I started mountain biking thanks to getting teased at my last bike shop for doing triathlon. I went on a trip to France in 2012 to compete in the Alpe d’Huez long course triathlon and when I returned, I just wanted to ride bike. So that’s what I did.
I have completed a Bachelor of Science in Nutritional therapy, Bachelor of Science Honours (sports nutrition and exercise metabolism) and I am currently completing my PhD (Sports nutrition and exercise metabolism). I have set up my online nutrition consulting business, Karen Hill Nutrition.
First up for 2017 will be the National cross country series, National Championships and Oceania Championships.
