My name is Ava Sykes and I’m from a small town right outside of Charlotte. I started out competing in triathlons and switched to cycling after watching my father race. Discovering new roads and meeting amazing people along the way made me fall in love with the sport of cycling.
In 2021, I’m looking forward to racing and making amazing memories with the Wolfpack girls.
