Marisa Boaz has had an incredible first year with the Mazda Lauf Factory Cycling Team as well as the Lux Cycling Development Team. She’s been racing in some of the biggest gravel and road races in the U.S. and even abroad, finishing in the top ten, on the podium and even a victory or two! She was a guest on Bike Talk with Dave on Episode 12 where we talked about her recent victory in the winter gravel classic CIRREM, but also about how and when she got her start racing bikes. Be sure to give that a listen to hear how this wife and mother of four entered the sport and quickly rose to be one of it’s best, all while juggling family and training.

After her victory at the Central Iowa race, CIRREM, she won the 100-mile Unbound race in Kansas. Shortly after she joined the Lux Cycling Development Team at the US Pro Nationals, competing in the Time Trial, Criterium and Road Race. Racing in Utah, Colorado and Nebraska were merely warm up rides for her trip to compete on her Lauf Seigla in The Rift, a 120-mile race on the challenging gravel roads of Iceland. Listen in to her conversation with long-time cyclist Dave Mable on Bike Talk with Dave.
