Born in the Czech Republic, Katerina grew up hitched to a mountain slope - skiing in the winter and mountain biking in the summer. Her downhill work earned a scholarship at University of Reno. More practice and hard work got her to three Olympic Games, participating for her native country in both disciplines.
In 2008, her focus shifted exclusively to racing mountain bikes, choosing biffing and dodging death cookies as part of the Luna Chix Pro Team. Nash currently lives in a small town near Lake Tahoe. “I have everything I love here,” says Nash, “For me, small towns mean big dreams.”
