Loraine Warner, Boston MA, USA

I am a Clinical Operations Lead working for a pharmaceutical company responsible for the strategic clinical operations oversight of molecule development, but I am first and foremost a mother of two, ages 5 and 7.  When I’m not busy with those aforementioned critical life elements (which is rare) I am an outdoor enthusiast, and love adventure.

Loraine’s recent results include:

2nd Concord Criterium 2017

4th Kendra Cup Cyclocross 2017

3rd Gloucester Cross Weekend 2017

Kristin Anderson, New Haven, CT, USA

After years of city commuting around San Francisco, Toronto, and Boston, I purchased my first road bike in 2012. I quickly fell in love with how far it could take me and decided to ride across the country for charity in 2013. Since riding 70 miles a day just wasn’t feasible once back in the working world, I signed up for a women’s racing clinic and in 2015. The need for speed took hold, and I had the opportunity to meet the BFSC team through the incredible community that women’s racing promotes. I’m looking foward to upping my game and skills with my new teammates in 2018!
