We’re back in action after a little hiatus that involved lots of cookies, gifts and champagne. So without further ado, we are pleased to introduce Ms. Fanny Bourdais de Charbonnière to the Folsom Bike family.
Fanny grew up in France playing tennis, skiing and horseback riding before focusing 200% on her studies and career. After graduating from HEC in Paris, she was hired by an investment bank in New York where she survived 10 years before moving to Sacramento last year to work in the private markets arm of CalPERS (infrastructure, energy and real estate investments). She bought her first road bike 4 years ago to get back in shape and “train for a triathlon” but quickly realized she would not make it out of the water alive and instead jumped head first into bike racing while barely knowing how to clip in. Waking up at 4am to race in Central Park, endless off-the-bike winters and 28h work days were getting old so she did not hesitate when she got an offer to move to the best coast and had a blast during her first Western racing season in 2016. She is very excited to join the Folsom Bike Women’s racing team and to work for such a great squad in 2017.
We’re excited to have you join us Fanny! Looking forward to a great season.
