20-year-old Marjie Bemis was born and raised in Corona, California. She is currently enrolled in Milligan University’s Nursing program in east Tennesse, with the hopes of becoming an ER or trauma nurse after she graduates in 2023. Marjie has raced road and mountain bikes on the Milligan cycling team and plans to add cyclocross to her schedule next season.
Marjie grew up riding horses and ran track and cross country in high school. She started mountain biking at age 12 with her dad and older sister. It soon became a huge part of her family’s life and she took a step back from horses and running in order to only focus on mountain biking her junior year of high school. Marjie won SoCal NICA Varsity championships and placed 3rd at state championships her senior year two weeks after having collarbone surgery. Quickly after, she won Cat 1 XC Nationals in Winter Park, Colorado.
Once Marjie got to college she began focusing on road racing. She is excited to get more experience on the road this season and combine her mountain bike background with road for some gravel racing!
In her free time, Marjie loves to go to the beach, watch movies, go on coffee shop rides, spend time with her friends, family, and dog, and shop!
