Pip grew up in Crested Butte, Colo. While you may think that she would have fallen in love with mountain biking at a young age (her mum, Vida ambassador Martha Hunt, certainly hoped it would), the suffer fest of hardtail bikes and grueling climbs didn’t quite entice a younger Pip.
She first fell for bikes when a couple of friends picked up the sport, and she discovered both full suspension and a bike that fit her. She soon went from a grumpy teenager dreaming of cute boys, to a dirt hungry, mile-chaser. When she packed up and moved to college, her most prized purchase for dorm life was her new hitch rack, and she hit the road to explore what UT had to offer.
After several years of racing cross country and endurance races (solo 24 hour race anyone?) Pip joined a group of ladies in Moab for the 1st Annual Strider Enduro. She promptly had her ass kicked. After a humbling weekend, Pip found a whole new inspiration for mountain biking. She sold her XC bike, bought a Yeti SB66 and has been chasing the VIDA ladies ever since.
When Pip isn’t trying to ride like Liz, you can find her skiing, running, reading, eating cookies, drinking wine, or at the Armada headquarters in Park City managing the women’s category.
