This or That: Yoann Barelli & Katrina Strand
Yoann Barelli moved to Whistler a few years ago to be with his crush, Katrina Strand. Since then the two have had a baby and begun to work together coaching bike skills to Whistler youth. Katrina doesn't race mountain bikes anymore but she's still heavily involved in the sport and runs a development team for aspiring and talented young riders. Her business, Strand Training, helps athletes improve and she's also involved with other youth mtb programs in Whistler.
While Yoann helps with the coaching and development his focus is still racing the Enduro World Series. He took some time to be with his young family in 2018 but still made it to the majority of the events. Everyone knows Yoann for his high energy and those that may know Katrina, know she is more laid back. So how do these two think about a range of topics? I found some of their responses quite surprising.
