Ep. 102 Kittie Weston-Knauer: BMX Legend

Bike Talk with Dave: All things bike! Bikepacking, cyclocross, gravel, mountain bike, road & events by Dave Mable

Episode notes

If you haven't been in the U.S. BMX community for the past 35 years, you may not recognize the name of Kittie Weston-Knauer. But if you HAVE been manualing the rollers or clearing the step-ups on the four straights of a BMX track, you probably just call her Miss Kittie! Suffice it to say that, even if you haven't been tail-whipping the table-tops, you might have seen a thing or two on this BMX Grandmother as she's been featured in the news around the world: New York Times, US News and World Report, NPR, Bicycling Magazine and about every local paper or TV station within 50-miles of a BMX track! What a treat to take a tour of her home-town BMX track - 80-35 BMX in Des Moines, Iowa on a warm November night and dive deep into what makes this mother, grandmother, teacher and high school principal line up at the gate!
