Kim Russell is a 27 year old professional mountain biker racer hailing from Hood River, Oregon. Her passion for extreme sports started the first time she slid down the stairs in a laundry basket. Her outdoor career started in 2001 as a professional whitewater kayaker. Known for outracing the men, and winning every individual downriver paddling event she entered, Kim's passion for action and adventure led her to pursue mountain biking. She currently travels the globe with Yeti Cycles, Easton Components, Chris King, Race Face, FOX, Dakine, Smith Optics, Vim & Vigr, Hood River Organics and Kate's Real Food racing in both the Big Mountain Enduro and Enduro World Series. Off the bike, Kim is a ACE certified personal trainer and PMBIA Level 1 certified MTB instructor.
