Bio - Gabrielle Russell.png

Gabrielle has been racing for 8 years and we are excited to welcome her back to Orion Racing. Her goals for the season include traveling to regions and races she has not done before!  

She owes it to her father who had been trying to get her into cycling since she was a teenager. After having hip injuries she quit dancing and ballet and decided to join her father's cycling team. I kept showing up and riding and 3 months later entered my first race. 

" My Dad has been very active in the local riding and racing scene in Minnesota. He used to pick me up from ballet in Lycra and lets be honest that was super embarrissing!" 

Gabrielle's favorite team memory is during the Sakari Road Race in Iowa, we had really good team tactics that played well to our individual strengths and we all got to share the podium! #teamworkmakesthedreamwork
