Becky Mikrut meets The Call Up - S2E5
This week, we call up Becky Mikrut - founder of Skunkworks Racing, co-leader of Women's Dirt Days, in her third year as member of the Chicago Cyclocross Cup Board of Directors. Cat 2 cross racer, Elite mountain biker, organizer and advocate here in Chicago, a liaison between the women's community and the CCC board. Whew. Not to mention her day job as a creative design lead/BOSS.
Becky has been racing for a long time, and she’s seen some SHIT when it comes to the evolution and growth of cross in Chicago. Not only has she seen some shit - as a Board member of the CCC, she’s deeply involved in improving and growing the sport in these parts. She was kind enough to join us on this episode to talk about the state of Chicago cyclocross, upping the ante on course design, recent history of gender parity in the series, and the correct way to eat Nerds (hint - take it like a shot).
