Candidate Statement from Kim DuBord
January 15, 2019
I respectfully request your vote for election to the NEBRA Board of Directors. I’m a triathlete turned cyclist (don’t hold that against me!) and began my tri “career” in 2009, completing all distances of triathlons until 2016, when I gave up 2/3 of triathlon to focus on cycling.  Although I’ve only been racing bikes for about 3 years, I have been heavily involved in the cycling community.  I’m a co-founder of the CT Women’s Bike Racing Initiative
that I started with Laura Summers to encourage, teach and help women become active in bike racing.  I’m a Board member of NEMCA, and have coached for the CCAP, both Road & Cyclocross.  I’m also an active member of Team ERRACE. I was out of racing for the 2018 season due to a couple of knee surgeries but I am psyched to get back to racing, as well as continuing to support and grow the sport that I’ve come to love so much. I’m hoping that further involvement as NEBRA can help me continue to do that.  
Kim DuBord
