"I did not announce retirement, " Nash said in a phone interview. "What that article was about, basically, is that I will not compete in a full mountain bike season next year. I will not be racing the world cup races and instead race more domestically."

Her cyclocross season, too, will be more domestic.

"My cyclocross season is changing in that I’m not going for Worlds. I feel like there is good competition domestically," Nash said, adding that she’ll be representing Luna at upcoming races such as Providence Cyclo-cross Festival, Ohio Cross and Spooky Cross.

Nash: “I did not announce retirement” - Podium Cafe

So glad Katerina Nash is NOT retiring!
