Missy forged the path for mainstream professional downhill mountain bikers around the globe. A serious force of nature, Missy (42) did not earn her nickname The Missile for nothing.
Missy was undoubtedly the sport’s first mainstream female superstar though, she landed campaigns for Reebok, is the all-time leader in NORBA downhill wins with 14 to her name and is second on the World Cup list with 11 titles under her belt.
And to top it off, it seems Missy is a woman of many talents, she was previously a nationally ranked downhill skier. Impressive stuff.
After retiring in 2003, Missy helped finance the travel and fees for several up and coming downhill cyclists.
