Tracey “T-Race” Petervary

Victor, Idaho

Cycling became a part of my life when I realized how much freedom and how much of the world I could see riding my bikes. When Jay and I were dating, we went to Round Valley, NJ to ride some trails. I fell in love with the speed of the downhills and the challenges of the up hills as well being in the forest.
