Rhae Shaw is a self-proclaimed smiley goofball, but don’t let that fool you. She’s also a serious competitor when she’s on two wheels. The former Ironman-triathlete switched to professional road cycling in 2011 and even though she might have started late in competitive cycling, her list of results reads like a seasoned pro.
The 40-year-old Canadian National Champion is currently riding for the newly developed women’s team BMW p/b Happy Tooth. Shaw previously took a short break from full-time racing, but she’s back at it this year and is already posting notable results. With a Big Bear Time Trial win at the Redlands Bicycle Classic, Shaw is showing good form early in the season. She just completed a three-week altitude-training block in Mammoth Lakes leading up to the AMGEN Tour of California, May 8-15, 2015 (Women’s Race).
