Rider Biography: Samantha Brode, who has raced representing Carbon Racing since 2009, describes herself as very excited to be a part of the RGF Ė Cleveland Clinic Womenís squad for the 2012 season. Samantha, a life time resident of Northeast Ohio, graduated from the University of Akron and shortly thereafter starting riding an old Specialized mountain bike around the area for exercise. ďI was so afraid to ride on the road that I would ride as hard as I possibly could to finish more quickly. ď Samantha attributes much of her initial success in local cycling to that level of hard riding. In 2003, Sam met up with members of the Stark Velo Cycling Team, and in 2004 began training and racing as a member. Sam has two Ohio State Time Trial Titles and several podiums at the Masterís Nationals and State competitions. She has raced in all level road races from UCI competitions to local races and considers her 34th place finish at the 2011 Elite National Road Race competition he
