BIOGRAPHY

Jenny Rissveds is a Swedish mountain bike and cyclocross racer,and though she's young in her career, her accolades are already many. She first threw her leg over a bike at the age of four and was in her first mountain bike race by seven. Ever since, she has been traveling around the world, racing just about every weekend and just about every time she crosses a finish line, her stock rises.

Jenny's racing schedule took her international in 2012, and she won her first Elite World Cup race the same year. Proving her skill and dedication, she earned a spot on the SCOTT Odlo MTB Racing Team team, as the only female rider. From there, she continued to compete at the highest level – becoming a four-time champion in mountain biking. At just 22 years old, competing in her first Olympics, Jenny put on a dominating performance in Rio and won a gold medal.
