- Larissa Connors is quite arguably the most energetic cyclist you will ever meet. A no filter and quirky approach to interviews. She has boundless energy that she uses to her advantage on the race course. For our show, she is the only person to have ever ridden her bike (From Orange County) to do the interview.
- At a young age she was always an athlete. She’s tried running as well as other disciplines within cycling. Larissa has found her niche in endurance mountain bike and gravel races. She is the only cyclist who remains undefeated at 100+ mile events at 10 wins and 0 losses.
- Larissa is a two time winner of the Belgian Waffle Ride and Leadville 100 races. Not only does she win but she wins by many minutes over her closest competitors. Larissa splits her time between racing and her profession as a high school math teacher. She shares her love of cycling with her students as they suspect she’s a “famous” cyclist.
- She got into cycling while she was a student at UC Davis where she met her husband who built her a custom time trial bike. That bike design and construction led him to getting a job with Felt Bicycles. A bike brand that Larissa now rides. Collegiate cycling opened doors for her as she now decides her own path in the cycling world. Whether it’s taking in race selfies or racing against (and sometimes) beating her idols, she always has a deep desire to go for broke and break herself physically and mentally.
Larissa is so energetic and the interview transforms in so many crazy and fun directions that you have to be on the edge of your seat just to keep up. She is at the top of her game and doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. If you’ve always wanted to get a glimpse into the mind of Larissa Connors, this is the episode for you!
