In a team full of dudes, Cat Culkin puts the whoa in ‘woman’. She’s a pint-sized powerhouse who balances the ability to climb, sprint, and be cool like no one else in the squad. Cat also keeps our sponsors on their toes, with adorable 38 cm bars from 3T and custom cranks from Rotor. She’s that big of a deal, and we wouldn’t be the team we are without her. Get inside the mind of the famous Cat Culkin, and remember; she was the first rider in the team to work the word ‘stinky’ into her questionnaire responses. #RESPECT
‘What is it that you most dislike?
I hate endlessly searching for the bathroom in an unfamiliar bar.
What is your greatest extravagance?
I splurge on stinky cheese. And I mean seriously stinky. Cheese that I can’t even eat in public because it’s so offensively stinky.
Which talent would you most like to have?
I wish I could sing. I’m so terrible at it, though. I typically mouth along to “happy birthday” if I can get away with it.
What is the quality you most like in a man?
A great draft.
What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
Insecurity. It’s hard to build up the people around me when I’m so unsure about where I stand. But at least it means I’m always striving for improvement.
What is the trait you most deplore in others?
Sneezing in my personal space on public transit. I’m talking about you, guy in the green. I felt mist.
On what occasions do you lie?
I lie to avoid social events. I’m not actually busy. I’m probably just baking sourdough, listening to NPR, combing a lint-y sweater, and/or shaking my fist at youths.
