Annie started racing mountain bikes in high school and joined the Appalachian State Cycling team in 2014, where she was the team president for two years. During that time she improved her fitness and expanded her racing history to include road, downhill, and cyclocross experience. She was a National Champion for Cat 1 Women 19-24 (2018), a three-time mountain bike conference champion for The Atlantic Collegiate Cycling Conference, finished 2nd place for short track and 4th place for XC at collegiate mountain bike nationals in 2017, and was 2nd in XC for Cat 1 19-24 year old women at open MTB Nationals in 2017.
She was also a board member for the Boone Area Cyclists for two years and was a recipient of the 2017 USAC Stenner and Kuck Scholarship. In the summer of 2017, Annie started a mountain bike program at a local girls’ summer camp. Annie graduated in May 2018 and spent three months interning at Carmichael Training Systems, learning what it takes to be an endurance coach. She is Wilderness First Responder Certified, and has her SafeSport training certification.
She is currently riding for the Carmichael Training Systems (CTS) Cycling Team, based in Brevard, NC, and is in the process of starting a NICA Team for middle/high school cyclists in Henderson County, NC. She and her husband Zeb Ramsbotham live in Tuxedo, NC, where they live and work full-time at a boys’ summer camp. When she is not on her bike, she spends her time painting watercolor, eating ice cream, and hanging out with her four younger sisters.
