bigquotesI am incredibly proud to join the Liv team. I remember seeing the Liv brand for the first time when I was growing up, it was so inspiring. As I learned more about the brand I realized that Liv shares the same passion I do - together we seek to bring more women into cycling and racing. It’s a dream come true to have Liv’s support as I pursue my goals and show the world what I can do.Linda Indergand

Hill, a stage race, marathon, cross-country and gravel racer, holds the African leader’s jersey for Cape Epic and has competed at the South African National Championships and UCI Mountain Bike Marathon World Championships.

 So rad to see Dani up there! She is a SoCal local and has been kicking butt at the races around here for a long time and just getting stronger.
