About Clif Pro Team

Since its genesis as the LUNA Pro Team in 2002, this squad has emerged as the one of the world’s top professional mountain bike and cyclo-cross racing teams.

Eight racers competing in pro cyclocross and mountain bike make up the Clif Pro Team, four of whom represented their countries in the 2016 Rio Olympics and complemented by four younger athletes that are shaping the future of the team.

Two-time world champion and three-time Olympian, Catharine Pendrel leads an all-star cast after a year that saw her claim a bronze medal in Rio and take the UCI mountain bike world cup overall title for the third time. Catharine is joined by five-time Olympian and multiple world cup winner, Katerina Nash. Italian national champion and two-time Olympian Eva Lechner also stays aboard for 2017 and will be joined by long-time CLIF Bar athlete Lea Davison, another two-time U.S. Olympian.
