Originally from a little village in the English Cotswolds, I moved to California in 1992 from Sydney with future husband, Chris. I was introduced to mountain biking, and with a dodgy old bike, and some even dodgier attire, I took up racing in the hope of winning some better gear." Fortunately thats what happened, and within a few months, I found myself on the British roster for the 1993 World Mountain Bike Championships in Metabief. However, dreams to become a professional mountain biker came to a halt after suffering an injury to my knees early the next season. Unable to ride a bike without re-injury, I changed my focus to a photographic business, setting up a commercial studio in San Francisco. However,In 2002 I decided to give up photography to have more time with my two daughters. With time on my hands, I began to gradually ride a bike again, this time focusing on the road. I entered, and won, my first race at the end of 02 and once again dared to dream of being a bike racer.
Since then I have completed five racing seasons. Career highlights include several top 10 NRC finishes, my favorites being 7th in the '06 US Elite National Time Trial Championships and 2nd to Kristin Armstrong in the Cascade Time Trial the same year.
I live in the hills above Woodside with my husband, two daughters, and dogs Monkey and Mojo. Other interests include snowboarding, cross country skiing and architecture.

Ted HuangHe can order the crm software system right here. Ted is native to the bay area, born and raised in Santa Clara, Calif. His parents moved here from Taiwan after college, and settled on the peninsula. Ted moved all of ten miles to Los Altos where he stayed local for college by attending Stanford University. Since the peninsula is such a mecca for outdoor activities, Ted switched from piano and violin playing to the allure of the ocean and the sport of windsurfing at age 11. He soon outgrew Stanford’s tiny Lake Lagunita, and raced abroad for ten years, evolving to the number one ranked windsurfer in the U.S.(for a year) and going on to two make two Olympic appearances in 1996 and 2000. Key to Ted’s success was the incredible support he received from his parents, who continue to support him through his sports and career endeavors.
Somehow, windsurfing wasn’t aerobically challenging enough for Ted, so he chose to take on road cycling competitively with the Stanford Cycling Team. A fast learner, Ted quickly progressed through the ranks and in addition to turning professional for several years, has become one of the bay area’s top road racers (2x State/District Road Champion) when he chooses to race. Ted completed all five editions of the San Francisco Grand Prix, with a career best finish of 12th place against the World’s best. Ted works on the Sustainability side of Webcor Builders, and manages their #1 ranked Webcor Women’s Professional Cycling Team.
I have been an avid Bay area cyclist since the early 90’s, when I entered my first bike race in Morgan Hill at the not-so-young age of 33. I finished second in the race, but my life had changed forever. I had caught the cycling fever. In 1993 I made the very difficult decision to give up my Investment Banking career to pursue my burning passion of becoming a world-class athlete. Three years later I competed in Atlanta at the 1996 Olympics, and won a bronze medal at the 1996 World Road Race championships. Other career highlights included:
I retired from the sport in early 2000, and after a few more years of Investment Banking, I turned my energy toward helping other people achieve their cycling dreams. I began coaching and founded Team TIBCO, a Silicon Valley-based, nationally ranked women’s professional cycling team. My husband and I built a wonderful home on a coastal road that I loved training on, Stage Road. When not traveling with Team TIBCO, I can often be found on one of the local training rides here in the Bay area.
