Cat Johnson rides to the top

From the Daily Camera

Shortly after finishing her degree at the University of Colorado, Cat Johnson ventured into the working world.

It wasn't quite what she -- or her parents -- imagined, though.

"I was a bike messenger," she said. "I had to ride all day, every day. I took it as an opportunity. I didn't take it super, super seriously, but I did find that I have this love for cycling, as well.

"It was kind of a fun way to make the transition to cycling."

Years later, she has turned that love into a passion. Today through Saturday, Johnson is competing at the Nature Valley Grand Prix in Minnesota. The Grand Prix is a five-day stage race pitting some of the top racers in the country in a team-oriented format.
