Melina Vissat lives in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado, where she's a committed mountain biker and advocate for the mountain biking community. She started mountain biking in 2017, which marked the same year she lost a bet that led to her racing her first backcountry MTB endurance event. A completely unprepared newb, she missed the last time cutoff by 12 minutes and promptly DNF'ed. But that failure lit a fire under her butt and she never looked back.
Today, she's an active member of the Colorado Springs mountain biking community. As a member of the Women's Mountain Biking Association (WMBA) race team, she spends her summer evenings leading women's group rides as a Ride Guide. She also sits on the Board of Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates, the local IMBA chapter, and serves as a Community Leader with the VIDA organization.
When she's not riding her bike, Melina is an avid reader and skier, happy to both tear up the resort and skin out for some backcountry pow. She's excited to race in 2021, looking at both XC and Enduro. She's thrilled to rep the Kaden brand as an ambassador, especially as she works to advocate for local trails and getting more women out on bikes.
