About Raylyn
Raylyn is a professional cyclocross athlete who is internationally ranked after only one year of racing at the elite level. An All-American college basketball player as well as triathlon competitor, Raylyn has recently fallen in love with the sport of cyclocross. 2019 marks her second season racing at the elite level and competing in World Cups. Raylyn has goals to continue to gain experience; competing in Europe within the next few years with sights set on the World Championship. 

Not only does Raylyn have the desire to be her absolute best in cyclocross, her vision is to be a strong role model and mentor to young cyclists throughout her journey. She seeks to encourage young cyclists by showing them how truly amazing bikes are, the importance of determination, and help them build confidence in themselves both on and off the bike all the while continuing to make a positive impact in the cycling and local communities.

"I'm beyond excited about my partnership with MINI as the car fits so perfectly into my life as I transition daily life as a full-time working professional as a scientist to full-time professional cyclist. Not only that, but this car fits perfectly into the off-road cycling scene as the Cooper S Countryman ALL4 was made for adventure!" -Raylyn
