Orion Racing is excited to welcome Jessica Meyer (@onyourleftbrain) to the team!
Jessica started racing bikes in college after doing a few triathlons and realizing she loved her bike more than swimming and running. She raced criteriums circa 2005 while living in St. Louis and spent many Labor Day weekends racing Gateway Cup.
After moving to New Mexico and Colorado, Jess started racing other disciplines and had a blast trying them all for the first time (gravel, road, time trial, cyclocross, and mtb). She eventually fell in love with mountain biking and will mostly be racing on dirt this year, with some longer XC races on the calendar. This is her first year racing again after taking a few years off due to having external iliac artery endofibrosis and a death in the family.
Jessica says she’s “thrilled to finally join an amazing team of strong and supportive women and contribute to the team’s success. Orion has always felt like my family and I look forward to supporting this team!”
