For a bike racer, all of the energy put into training, travel, and mental preparation unfolds itself in a flash on the track. Gates drop. Chains tighten. As tires cross the finish line, they’re left with the result that can make or break seasons and spirits. Kialani Hines is no stranger to the stresses of the life of a bike racer, much of it weighing down off-the-track and in the real “adult world” where pressures from sponsors and managing the logistics as a privateer pulling off an international racing campaign. Diary of a Racer follows Kialani as she makes her way across the globe to compete–the ups, downs, and moments in-between runs and races.
