Meet Our Team
Six exceptional athletes competing in elite mountain bike, gravel, and cyclo-cross races. Sponsored by CLIF Bar & Company since 2002. Since its inception, the CLIF Pro Team has won two Olympic medals and World Championships, along with World Cup titles.
The CLIF Pro Team was originally founded in 2001 on the principles of creating opportunities for women in sports, and to advocate for equal pay, prize money and support of these athletes. While we still support female achievement in sports, it’s the right time to create opportunity for women and men alike. The 2019 team will be led by veterans Katerina Nash and Catharine Pendrel and supported by two very talented young women, Haley Batten and Hannah Rae Finchamp— both NICA alumni — and two very talented men, Russell Finsterwald and Ben Sonntag, embracing CLIF’s “Born on the Bike” heritage and the adventures ahead.
