Alyssa Journey is a new Trigger Point Therapy Sponsored-athlete currently living in Little Rock, AR. Alyssa, 36, is an Xterra athlete whom has been racing Xterra for 3 years and Mountain bikes for 11 years. Please give Alyssa a huge “Good Luck” as she competes at Xterra World Championships this upcoming weekend in Maui!
Alyssa started racing mountain bikes in Oklahoma about 11 years ago. She then spent the next 10 years in Dallas, TX racing in the Beginner and Sport class. She did it mostly because she loved to ride, and she absolutely loved the social aspect of riding bikes.
“Running was not ever something I really wanted to do… but I loved to ride in the dirt, and I loved to swim… ” said Alyssa recently. “So about 3 years ago I decided to give Xterra a shot. I was HOOKED! I love the fact that everyone has a strength… and it varies from course to course. This passion has also lead me to my dream career. I came to work for Orca/Orbea in January of this year in Little Rock, AR. It just doesn’t get any better than that!”
Alyssa continues to race her mountain bike in Arkansas and am looking forward to a full racing season in 2012 for both Mountain biking and Xterra! She’ll be representing Spokes Little Rock on her Orbea Alma 29er! Read more about her racing and her trip to Xterra World Championships on her blog at: www.myxterrajourney.tumblr.com.
