Arielle Martin is not only an incredible athlete, and olympic racer she is also a local. Arielle grew up in Cedar Hills, attended BYU, and has family all over the Wasatch Front. In fact her dad is the one and only Travis Martin (MadDog Provo) who has been building wheels and running bike shops for 20+ years.
Arielle got her start in racing in 1990 at age five, and has been hooked ever since. Traveling all over the country and winning some national races made Arielle a pro at age 15 which at the time was unheard of for most young female racers. After a crash in 2008 which kept her from the Beijing Olympics Arielle came back full force to qualify for London this year, and qualifying is only the first step. Arielle has full intentions of a podium finish in August. With all the work, dedication, and focus that she has put into her sport over the last 21 years a podium finish is with out a doubt an option.
We have rounded up a few videos about Arielle which really highlight all of her hard work and intentions in her own words. Arielle will be racing August 8th and August 10th in London check her out on Twitter for updates and info @AMV15. Also, make sure to swing into MadDog Provo sometime before August and congratulate Travis.
