About Haley Batten
Batten trained in Park City where Olympians are known to work out before the Olympics, but most of them do it for winter sports.
She grew up snowboarding and skiing in Park City, just like many kids there, but when her parents bought a bicycle and she started mountain biking, something clicked.
