HIVE SPOTLIGHT: Get to know Megan Bradley

Athlete:
Megan Bradley

Home base:
I grew up in Lake Arrowhead, California. It is a small town in SoCal a mile high in the mountains of the San Bernardino National Forest. Currently I am attending University of California, Berkeley in Northern California and racing for the Cal Cycling team.

Main sport:
Cycling, primarily mountain biking.

Goal for the future:
Right now I am training for USA Cycling Mountain Bike National Championships, held in Mammoth, CA, in mid-July. My goal is to win the Cat 1 Women 19-29 cross country mountain bike race.

Training tip:
Let’s say the trail has a lot of rocks and roots…don’t let that psyche you out. Just think of them as clumps of dirt. Haven’t you ridden over a clump of dirt before?

Funniest training or competition moment:
I was riding up a road in Berkeley and when I turned the corner there were about 20 wild turkeys running around in the street.

How did you hear about Honey Stinger?
I bought my first Honey Stinger energy chews at a bike shop in SoCal – they were the grapefruit flavor!

GFwaffleProBar_bloggraphic (002)Favorite Stinger fuel:
I have two favorite products depending on the mood I am in. I like the Gluten Free Salted Caramel Waffle and the Dark Chocolate Coconut Almond Protein Bar the best.

Recovery tip:
I like to always have a good source of protein after a hard ride. If I cannot immediately eat a whole meal, then I always grab a Honey Stinger protein bar (the Dark Chocolate Coconut  Almond flavor).

If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
I would be a platypus because they are so versatile. They have beaks, swim underwater, and lay eggs!
