Casey Brown has one hell of a story.  This bad ass mountain biker’s life has been filled with twists and turns that I will not spoil in this intro.  I will say that Casey had an upbringing different than anyone’s that I have met in my life.  Based on all that Casey shares, you would think that she would have a totally different, maybe even strange personality.  I found none of that, what I did find was an amazing athlete who knows all about highs and lows.  It’s another incredible story.
