Anna Beck is a Brisbane based mountain biker who packs a punch. With a full-schedule of life, she still manages to run a women’s MTB Team (Sol Breads-Cyclinic), coach a number of athletes, and race national level XCO and XCM, plus state level road.
This year, Beck made it a goal to represent Australia at the XCM World Championships in Laissac, France – even though she has never considered herself a marathon racer. But a 5th place at the Australian National XCM Championships, and then a 4th at the National XCM Round in Bendigo secured her a berth on the Australian XCM Team.
This year, Anna is riding a Rocky Mountain Element, and it’s a custom build from the frame up, with considerable tweaking from her husband Aiden Lefmann, front man at Cyclinic – who do high-end suspension servicing.
Here’s a look at Anna’s bike ahead of the XCM World Championships. Wheels weren’t shot well, but they’re Nextie Bike rims to Project 321 hubs with a Maxxis Ignitor front and Ikon rear. A good choice for the mostly dry but sometimes sloppy course here in Laissac.
