As a child in Plano, Texas, 23 year old Flora Yan always enjoyed the sense of freedom and adventure that accompanied her as she rode her bike through her neighborhood streets. At 16 years of age, she quickly fell in love with the sport of cycling. Flora soon entered the local state and collegiate racing scene, also winning the DII Collegiate Nationals TT in 2016. Other achievements include a 2nd at the Elmhurst Classic of the Intelligentsia series in 2017, and GC overall at Hotter N’ Hell in 2016.
Soon entering her last year as a medical student at UT Southwestern, Flora enjoys dedicating herself to her two greatest passions: medicine and cycling. She is an all-arounder and finds the most pleasure in fulfilling the domestique role in any way possible. She loves the camaraderie and team environment that encompasses bike racing, and is excited to return to Flamingo Racing in 2020!
