    Natalie Rix

    NICKNAME
    Fun Rix

    HOMETOWN
    Edmonton, AB

    DAY JOB
    Event Coordinator for an Engineering/Geoscience Association

    YEARS RIDING
    Approx. 12 years

    PRIMARY RIDE STYLE
    MOUNTAIN!! Cross Country / All Mountain and then Downhill. Thanks to Specialized, I had the opportunity to try road bikes - really enjoyed it!

    FAVORITE RIDE PLACE/ROUTE
    I love riding in Edmonton - I can always find a challenging trail or new way to ride a familiar trail. Fernie, Invermere, and Revelstoke are my TOP mountain destinations to bike

    FAVORITE POST-RIDE FOOD/DRINK
    Beer and burgers!

    CLIMB VS. DESCEND?
    Tough choice! Both! I love climbing a technical section for the excitement of making it up and over roots. I love ripping a descent too! Especially if there's jumps and berms!

    DREAM RIDE
    Switzerland or Andorra. Switzerland because I would like to visit the same spot my mother did and view the Matterhorn as she did. Then tear around on my bike on some incredible trails. Andorra because it's a tiny country host to one of the UCI World Cups and looks amazing.

    FULL LYCRA, Y/N?
    Hard no

    DREAM RACE/EVENT
    I'm not much of a racer - I'm way too competitive and I'd probably be a sore loser. Or I'll surprise myself and have a blast! Probably the latter. But I would love to attend a UCI DH or XC World Cup race for the atmosphere. 

    I LOVE RIDING WITH
    Nothing beats riding with my best gal pals. I've met so many incredible women to ride with and coach through my women's mountain bike group, Women on Wheels YEG. Riding with boys always ups the ante - it's race pace all the way!

    QUOTE/MOTTO
    A rolling tire is a gripping tire.
    Enjoy the Ride.
    Boobs to the Bar!

    WHY DO YOU RIDE?
    This is a loaded question. Why DO I ride? There hasn't been a moment in my riding career that I haven't been happy when riding. When I ride my bike, my soul comes alive

    SKILL YOU WISH YOU COULD MASTER BUT HAVEN’T (YET)
    The wheelie. It eludes me...
