Karen Jarchow Discusses Being a Pro

<<Back to Girls & Gears Home


August 23, 2013


This is definitely a women-specific show. Danielle and guest, Karen Jarchow, discuss a lot of what women pros go through to make it. Karen shares her story of where she started and how she got to where she is now. It takes a lot of work, positive attitude, and several odd jobs to keep things rolling!


They also discuss the Breck Epic and Karen's very personal reason for pulling out of the race. Karen wrote about her women-specific issues in a recent post and discusses it here. It's a very frank discussion about issues that many women have with riding and racing but don't discuss.
