Janel Holcomb’s professional career began as a Chemical Engineer but she soon transitioned into teaching high school chemistry, math, and physics to help teenagers get excited about learning. During her time as a teacher in San Diego, Janel discovered road cycling by riding and raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society with her husband. Cycling friends and a local coach encouraged Janel to take the next step and start bike racing; it turned out to be the right path as Janel turned professional in 2008, just one year after her first bike race. Janel has raced for three pro teams and the US National team in the US, Canada, Europe, New Zealand and Qatar. Her breakout year was in 2011, when she won the overall NRC title and three NRC stage races: Cascade Cycling Classic, Tour de Toona, and the Joe Martin Stage Race. Janel was honored to be selected as a member of the US Olympic Long Team for the 2012 London Olympics and will continue to race through 2016 with the goal of qualifying for the Rio Olympics, helping the US earn a gold medal at the World Championships, and winning more races along the way.
