Like so very many, we were heartbroken to have learned of the passing of Kelly Catlin. Kelly was a beloved member of the Felt Bicycles family, the Rally UHC Cycling professional team, the USA Cycling track racing program, and the worldwide cycling community.
Kelly was an instrumental part of the USA Cycling track team in recent years, having helped propel the women’s Team Pursuit squad to an Olympic silver medal in 2016, as well as three consecutive rainbow jerseys at the UCI Track World Championships in 2016, 2017, and 2018. She also captured two medals on her own in the Individual Pursuit event at the World Championships. She joined the Rally UHC Cycling professional race team in 2017, and over the past few months, was preparing for an ambitious road racing campaign in 2019.
Beyond her accomplishments in racing, Kelly was exceptionally intelligent and hard-working, and was working towards her graduate degree in Computational Mathematics at Stanford University. Most importantly, Kelly was also incredibly kind, giving, and sincere.
Kelly will always have a special place in the hearts of members of the #feltfamily. Our deepest condolences go out to Kelly’s family members and friends during this tragic time.
