Retired pro cyclists Jimena Florit took up a new competitive career - in the world of business after twelve years on the pro circuit. After competing all over the world, including in two Olympic Games, three Pan American Games, and nine World Championships, the Argentinean heads her own coaching services business.

The two-time NORBA cross country overall series winner will lead several upcoming camps with Cycling Camp San Diego. She provides on-the-road instruction, shares stories of her travels, offer tips, and gives insight into the world of competitive mountain bike racing. Cycling Camp San Diego creates opportunities for cyclists to gain base training miles during winter months.

On her website, Florit said, "I love this sport and I would like to pass along my passion to others." The retired pro has raced for LUNA women's mountain bike team and the RLX-Polo Ralph Lauren mountain bike team. She is now based in San Diego.
