The inaugural Life Time Grand Prix presented by Mazda adventure race series continues Saturday, July 9, in Beaver, Utah. On the docket is a relatively short but brutal 70-mile (112km) mixed terrain race with 40 percent pavement and 60 percent gravel.

The race is touted as one of the hardest 70-mile races one will ever do, largely due to the relentless climbing at high altitude.

Anne-Marije Rook
North American Editor

Cycling Weekly's North American Editor, Anne-Marije Rook is old school. She holds a degree in journalism and started out as a newspaper reporter — in print! She can even be seen bringing a pen and notepad to the press conference.

Originally from The Netherlands, she grew up a bike commuter and didn't find bike racing until her early twenties when living in Seattle, Washington. Strengthened by the many miles spent darting around Seattle's hilly streets on a steel single speed, Rook's progression in the sport was a quick one. As she competed at the elite level, her journalism career followed, and soon she became a full-time cycling journalist. She's now been a cycling journalist for 11 years.
