Meet the Team
Born in England, her family emigrated to the USA landing her in the swamps of Gainesville, FL. Katie’s first love was swimming and she carried that passion through college earning her spot on the Florida State University Swimming and Diving Team and eventually leading the Lady Noles as Team Captain.
Post college Katie picked up the sport of running and was eventually convinced to buy a bike and do her first triathlon. It was clear from that first race that she was going to go far in the sport as she was instantly bit by the bug.
Katie started winning races locally and eventually tried her hand at long distance racing. In 2013 she finished 13th at IRONMAN Florida, followed by a 4th place finish at IRONMAN Boulder in 2016 earning a qualifying slot to the IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS in Kona, HI.
Talented at all distances Katie has qualified for three 70.3 World Championship and competed in two; 2017 Chattanooga 70.3 and 2019 Nice 70.3.
You don’t have to look far to see Katie’s wide array of accomplishments including Boston Marathon, Gasparilla Marathon, Charlevoix Marathon, St. Pete Classic to name a few.
Katie is building a name for herself in the cycling community and she is a passionate about Time-Trial series, Grand Fondo’s and learning to race Criteriums.
Her best and most proud accomplishments is being Mum to Abby (12) and Jack (8). Katie is the better half to BikeSport Owner Dave McEnery making them a Dynamic Duo!
Andrew has been riding bikes as long as he can remember, probably even before then. He started venturing further and further from the neighborhood exploring what was to find. That adventurous spirit was what eventually led him to the mountain bike - an unlimited possibility of exploration.
After growing up in Tampa, Andrew moved to Tallahassee to attend Florida State University. Before long he knew the cycling community and raced with the FSU Cycling Team all over the Southeast. When he wasn’t in class you could find him in the dirt.
Moving back to Tampa he began exploring more facets of cycling including road cycling, criterium racing, group riding, and the bmx community. Though any opportunity presented he still finds himself headed toward the mountains.
