Gibson is a two-time collegiate national champ who lives in Grand Junction, Colorado with roommate and now-teammate Maddie Munro.

Trek Factory Racing XC is home to a host of decorated riders including Jolanda Neff, Evie Richards, Munro, Vlad Dascalu, and Riley Amos.

“In my opinion, Trek is one of, if not the best World Cup team that you can be on,” Gibson said. “Even if you’re just looking at teammates, Jolanda Neff is an Olympic champion and a world champion. Evie is a world champion. Anton [Cooper] and Vlad [Dascalu], Maddie and Riley, everyone is so strong. And just being around in that environment where you’re surrounded by other people who are doing things that you want to do, I think it makes everyone stronger.”
