Yvonne Kraus

An accomplished cross-country rider, Yvonne discovered mountain biking 20 years ago and immediately knew she had found a new passion.  She began racing offroad XTERRA Triathlons, competing worldwide, and soon expanded into long distance mountain bike marathons and multi-day adventure races.  

Yvonne joined Evergreen in October 2015, bringing 16 years of experience as Program Director and Regional Manager in the green building and energy efficiency industry, with a strong focus on facilitation, community outreach, and public involvement.   Yvonne also founded the XTERRA Green Team, a volunteer effort to maintain and clean up XTERRA race trails and venues, and Ecoathlete.org, a non-profit organization promoting green sports products.  

While Yvonne is impartial when it comes to trails (she loves them all), she does enjoy the trails on Tiger Mountain, and is also a big fan of Moab when venturing out-of-state. Yvonne lives in Seattle with her husband Brian.
