Hi! I’m Starla Teddergreen. I’ve raced professionally on the road for 15 years and have made a name for myself as an aggressive, punchy racer. As a team leader and experienced rider, I’ve successfully supported teammates to countless wins. I’ve also created opportunities for myself within races and found success at the sport’s highest level, including UCI races. I’ve worn multiple leader jerseys but also taken home climber jerseys and a multitude of sprint classifications. In 2019, I was the USA Crits overall champion.

On top of being a racer, I’ve been a mentor, coach, and advocate for equality in cycling throughout my career. When the pandemic hit and international travel and racing paused, I seized the opportunity to fully transition to gravel and MTB racing. Moving to dirt was a way to challenge myself and continue growing as an athlete. I was validated to discover that my road racing skills carried over into gravel and MTB, and I’ve stood on several podiums in the past couple of years. What I didn’t anticipate, however, was how hard I would fall in love with this style of racing and the community.

With the transition to dirt-based privateer, I was inspired to start DTE with my husband to build my race program, our philanthropic Pursuit Awards program, and this storytelling platform.

Despite huge setbacks in my 2022 season, my health challenges presented a unique opportunity to embrace the DTE ethos. What should have been racing struggles became a struggle for life, then recovery, then comeback, and as the story unfolded, you all got to see what we’re aiming for with the brand. I won my first race back, finished one of the hardest races on Earth, and am now looking forward to a 2023 season that will be full gas.
