Featured Rider: Aliya Traficante

By |March 19th, 2014|Featured Rider, News, Road|Comments Off on Featured Rider: Aliya Traficante|

Twice a month, the Women’s Cycling Association showcases an inspiring rider from the women’s cycling community. This week we’re excited to introduce junior racer Aliya Traficante.

WCA: What has been your most memorable experience in the sport?

Aliya: Last year I raced my first international race, Tour of Rimouski, in Quebec, Canada.

I felt accomplished, and it was even more rewarding to share that feeling with a team.

WCA: What challenges have you faced in cycling?

Aliya: One of my largest challenges was keeping my emotions in check when racing. Aggressive racing scared me a bit and I let it get in my head. I have learned to shut it out, focus on the positive, and concentrate on what I need to do. I have also learned to push back and that usually what happens on the course, stays on the course. People do what they can in order to win, and most people are so high on adrenaline during the race that anything can happen!

WCA: What do you enjoy most about the sport?

Aliya: Cycling has provided so many opportunities that I would not have had, had I decided not to race. I think what I enjoy most is the amount of traveling I am fortunate to do and the people I have met. [...]
