It's fine. That's the ongoing joke inside of Jen Orr - Ultra-endurance Cyclist's circle, but in this episode there's no joke about what Jen has been able to accomplish in just a few short years of becoming an ultra cyclist, a transition from her previous life as a competitive triathlete. Notably, Jen has recently set 8 World Ultra-Cycling Association (WUCA) world records in her 24-hr record attempt in Borrego Springs, California, grabbing the distance records of 100-, 200-, 300-, and 500-km, as well as the 100-, 200-, and 300-mile records, and also the 6 hour timed record. Last year, Jen won 1st place overall in the Race Across the West (RAW) and in 2018 she won first place in the women's category at the 6-12-24 Hour World Time Trial Championships (WTTC). Her RAAM qualifier was also at the 24 hour worlds back in 2017. In a short amount of time, Jen has also acquired a lot of experience through racing over 20 double centuries in California and crewing for Seana Hogan - Transcontinental Record Holder's 2018 Race Across America (RAAM). I can't wait to follow her RAAM journey in 2021! Let’s roll! 🚲💨
