Liz Finkelstein started mountain biking in 2014. Back then she had a hardtail 29er, but always looked up to the guys doing downhill at the local bike park in Marquette, Michigan. In 2015 she bought an ol’ Mongoose Booter and tried out downhill for herself. Now she races Downhill around the country. She moved to Taos in 2018 and while stoked on the local Angel Fire bike park she wants to help improve the local pedal trails around Taos. There is so much shred potential to be had! Outside of biking Liz also teaches yoga, backpacks, fly fishes, and rock climbs.
