Lucy Bechtel (Canberra, AUS), coming off a breakthrough season on the NRS Australian calendar, is as fearless as ever! Lucy joined Fearless Femme Racing in 2016 with a background in hilly stages and mountain biking. During her first year racing for Fearless Femme, Lucy quickly became a race-changer with her powerful breakaway strength and uphill power. Leading into her 2016 Australian race season, Lucy took her Fearless experience and emerged as one of the grittiest and explosive racers in the peleton. Fearless Femme is excited to welcome Lucy Bechtel back to the criterium battle ground!
Flora Yan (Plano, TX, USA) joins Fearless Femme with a refreshing balance of breakaway power and sprint pop! Flora came off of a packed 2016 calendar that tested her road, time-trial and criterium skills from Joe Martin Stage race to Tulsa Tough! Perhaps her crowning achievements were earning the win in the DII Collegiate Individual Time trials, GC Overall at the Hotter N’ Hell and a Top 5 at the hilly Port Washington Stage of ToAD. Flora also excels off the tarmac as a first year medical student at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, specializing in oncology or neurology, at the ripe age of 20!

Like all Fearless Femme, Kyrstin is a balanced athlete who is completing her Bachelor of Science in chemistry, then enlisting in the military forces.
