Teal Stetson-Lee grew up as a mountain kid, Tele skier and Nordic ski racer in Durango, Colorado. Teal now resides in Reno, Nevada. She started mountain bike and cyclocross racing on the Fort Lewis College (FLC) Cycling Team and has raced professionally for seven years with such teams as Cal-Giant, the Luna Pro Team, and Scott 3Rox. She now continues to race professionally on Scott bikes. Besides racing, she enjoys being out on bikes anywhere, exploring interesting places with interesting people and, in general, feeding her soul in the mountains. In January of 2015, Teal founded her own company, ShadowIndustries, LLC, and successfully produced The CrossReno Cyclocross Event and Music Festival in 2015 and 2016.

/ Cross Country, Enduro, or else? Why?
Enduro, Cyclocross, Dirt Jumpers and Cross Country, in that order. Diversity in cycling is key. Fitness is cool, but mad skills are even cooler. Racing is cool, but riding incredible trails and seeing amazing scenery is even cooler.
/ Lloyd or Harry? (Hint- “That John Denver’s full of sh*t man.”)Why?
Lloyd, Jim Carrey bro, 'nough said... "He must work out..."
/ What bikes do you own?
Bikes- It's all about variety, road to BMX and everything in between, you can never have too many bikes! My current bikes: Scott Genius LT, Scott Genius 700, Scott Genius 900, Scott Scale 700, Scott Voltage 0.1, Scott Solace, 2 Scott Addict Cross bikes, Kona Dew Plus- townie, Schwinn Breeze cruiser, Macneil, Dave Freimuth signature frame street BMX, and a unicycle (still learning).
/ Carne asada or pork carnitas?
Pork carnitas! Slow cooked pork with green chile is one of life's great gifts.
