Megan Hottman has been racing bikes since 2002. She came from a running background, dabbled briefly in triathlon, and then realized the bike was her true love. She started racing on the road in 2003, and then added track racing in 2007, earning multiple state championship titles in both disciplines, and then her first National Championship on the track in 2009.
In 2012, she began adding CX and MTB to her race schedule, and then in 2014 discovered gravel racing and fat bike racing as well. She is the 2015 women’s SingleSpeed Gravel Worlds champion. Recently, she made her return to triathlon, and added 2015 and 2016 Ironman AZ finishes to her resume.
Now in 2017-she’s got her sights set on some serious goals in both gravel racing and triathlon, which will include racing Dirty Kanza in the new women’s SingleSpeed division, and working towards elite status in triathlon. You can read more about her at her website: www.MaximumEnthusiasm.com
