Athletics have been a constant in Bertine’s life since childhood. She is a former Division I rower for Colgate University, a pro figure skater, and pro triathlete–which eventually lead to the beginning of her road cycling career in 2007. Off the bike, she is a journalist and author of two sports memoirs (All The Sundays Yet to Come, Little Brown and As Good As Gold, ESPN Books), and wrote the So You Wanna Be an Olympian? column for ESPN and the Riding with the Pros column for espnW, where she also worked as senior editor in 2011.
