Cannondale Kenda Women's Elite Team




Our mission is to advance women’s cycling while racing at the highest level. We are rider owned and operated and we foster the growth of our sport through racing, mentoring, coaching and clinics. We are women with full-time jobs, some with families and all with rich and full lives outside of cycling. We are heavily involved in our respective cycling communities and proud of the imprint we leave on our sport.

Continue to race at the highest level and promote the sport we love.

Jenny Smith will compete in high profile USA Mountain bike endurance events and XTERRA championship races. She’ll be racing the Epic rides series, Moab rocks and Breck Epic stage races.

Jenny is head coach for the Crested Butte Devo U19 and high school race team. She invests in her cycling community through this program, skills clinics and her Jenny Smith endurance coaching.

We are developing our youngest racer, Olivia Gordon and supporting her journey as she transitions from a top high school racer to a collegiate racer at Fort Lewis college in Durango Colorado.

We race on our teammate Nina Baum’s Cannondale Women’s line of bikes.  

Cut the tubes of Chews in half for races and they are easy to grab from a pocket and eat on the go.
