Shea doing more cool stuff! What an opportunity… Good luck girls! #Repost @sheaholbrook ・・・ I’ve been fortunate to be involved in many amazing opportunities thanks to my family, friends, partners and by having damn good work-ethic. Super pumped to announce I’ll be helping out @firecycle, Denise Mueller, 15-time cyclist champion in her pursuit to break the paced bicycle land speed record of 167 mph on the Bonneville Salt Flats in September! I’ll be driving a Range Rover Sport SVR, fully race prepped while Denise drafts near inches away over several miles to reach 168 mph to break the record! Not only will Denise be the first woman to attempt this, we’ll be the first female team of this kind. This is definitely something out of left field and I’ve honestly never been so excited to help someone achieve such an “unbelievable” goal. Denise is perceived to be the best female cyclist in the country, if not the world and has the stamina to compete alongside the worlds best male cyclist. Not only is she a total badass but she’s one of the kindess and coolest people I’ve ever met. I wouldn’t do this and put myself in a position if I didn’t think she (we) were capable. Can’t wait to be in the Guinness Book of World Records with you Denise!

There are a LOT of women involved in stage rally here in the USA, but it is relatively foreign to many other types of racers. So, what do you want to know… what questions do you have?!
Anything from… “I don’t understand rally!” to “What does the co-driver do?” We’re working on a project to bring you the answers to YOUR questions, so please ask any questions you have below!
