Cross country mountain biking: Fingers off the brakes, hurling yourself down a steep descent with threatening rocks, roots, and trees at every bump; full body on the gas, feeling the burning in your legs as you power up a sky-scraping hill.
Yup, that’s me! My name is Soren Meeuwisse, and not only do I race internationally for the sport of cross country mountain biking, but I am also a new and proud Hammer Nutrition Ambassador!
As my first post on the Hammer Nutrition blog site, I thought I would introduce myself so that later on in the year when you see a post from some biker chick, or some girl making silly Youtube videos (wait, already done… but more to come?!), you know that food-lover is me!
I am 18 years old, and I live in Orillia, ON with my supportive parents and brother. Currently, I am in residence while studying kinesiology in my first year at McMaster University in Hamilton. I have the dream to pursue a professional cycling career, and during my developing years I plan to complete my undergrad!
I am on the Trek Canada Mountain Bike Team and Team Canada for mountain biking as I travel around Canada and the world throughout the year for training and racing. Last year, I was ranked the top U19 Canadian female, and travelled to Andorra for World Championships. I also compete provincially and nationally for Nordic Skiing with Team Hardwood, and for XC running with the McMaster varsity team.
I have actually grown up using Hammer Nutrition products, and I can’t wait to fuel myself properly again this year while I’m on the Hammer Nutrition Canada Ambassador Team!
So that’s all for now, but you can watch my Hammer Time Banneggs video I made last year (the silly video I was referring to up above) to get to know me super-fast! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ol-uaK88e6Y
