Go Josie, presented by Pearl Izumi and Swiftwick, follows Josie Fouts, a two-time U.S. Paralympics national champion, as she works with her friend and fellow cyclist Leo Rodgers to build a gravel bike from scratch that will allow her to shift gears and use both front and rear brakes independently with one hand. In addition to pushing her personal athletic limits and competing at the highest level she can, Fouts hopes to drive change in the cycling industry and make the sport and its programs accessible for all bodies.
