Shealen Reno is the recently added whip master of the Factory Supercross squad. Spend more than 15 minutes scrolling through the Instagram explore page, and you're bound to find pics of her sitting sideways on her Envy BLK 2. Shealen is from Dallas, Texas, racing the Elite Women category. She was first introduced to BMX when Shealen's dad took her older brothers out to a BMX race one night. Shealen got sick of watching everyone else ride as she sat in the stands. She took the training wheels off her princess bike and taught herself how to ride on the sidelines of the Cowtown BMX track! Since those days of late 2000, Shealen has never looked back!
Shealen is an extremely talented racer who is as skillful as she is fast. In 2012, Shealen took home a silver medal at the Birmingham UCI World Championship as a 16-year-old. She was also a back to back Jr. Women Elite USA National Champion winning in 2013 and 2014. Then again, in 2014, Shealen took home another silver medal at the Rotterdam UCI World Championships in the Jr. Women Elite class.
Looking into next season, Shealen hopes to continue winning big events. She's also looking to share as much love and knowledge as she can with the BMX community. Shealen is in the process of building a bike park in Bowie, TX, for the local community. BMX is her way of giving back love and kindness to those around her. She believes in making the sport more accessible, which is her goal by building a new facility in Bowie, TX.
Outside of BMX racing, Shealen enjoys mountain biking and riding trails with her friends. It's clear to see how she got her superb skill set. Shealen is almost always on a bike, improving her skills and pushing herself. Seeing as she is a recent recruit to the team, we look forward to what Shealen will accomplish in a Supercross jersey over the years!
