First Turn Donne and subsequent depression

Despite his good results he preferred to return to the United States in the amateur team of Peanut Butter & amp; Co. TWENTY12 to be close to home. This team guaranteed her more freedom and a calendar focused on American races knowing that she could run important European races with her national team and even with her team because she had her in her ranks and could be invited. Europe achieving the second position in the Tour de l’Aude Feminine and the victory in the Giro d’Italia Femenino (also called Giro Donne) becoming the first American to achieve it.

In 2011 he joined the Italian-American professional team of Diadora-Pasta Zara. However, during that year she was involved in depression and anorexia due to the lack of adaptation to European professional cycling that made her leave the sport in 2012. She only ran two races in Europe, specifically in Italy, the Alfredo Binda Trophy -Comune di Cittiglio where she left and in the Giro de Italia Femenino where she was tenth being that her last professional race of the season in June In the following month she ran the amateur test of the Cascade Classic, which she won, giving finished his season due to the problems mentioned.

Second Tour Donne

At the end of 2012 he announced his return but again in the humble all-American professional team of the Exergy TWENTY16 (formerly Peanut Butter & Co. TWENTY12) with the aim of recovering his previous level.

Her return to professionalism could not be more satisfactory, after highlighting in the US calendar she was selected by her country to play the Giro d’Italia Femenino (her last race in Europe was the Giro d’Italia Femenino 2011) [ 14] where, despite not being one of the favorites, he stood out winning the two mountainous stages that made him win the test with a wide advantage.

Giro Donne 2014: off the podium for unsportsmanlike maneuvers towards her

The following year he returned to another professional team in his country, this time to the newly created UnitedHealthcare Professional Cycling Team, and its director Mike Tamayo, who already directed Mara in the US National Team, gave him total freedom to schedule his training and racing to play. It can be said that it was his most international season start after his psychological problems running races in Argentina and El Salvador getting 3 victories in El Salvador. Although he again showed reluctance to race in Europe, his first race in that continent was the Giro d’Italia Femenino . Despite this, he emerged as a clear favorite for the Italian event because the course favored his great characteristics. climber with just 2 km against the clock in the first stage and two hard final finals in the last two stages: San Domenizo di Varzo and Madonna del Ghisallo, respectively.

However, Rabo Liv Women Cycling Team runners – led by Marianne Vos (winner of 4 stages), Pauline Ferrand-Prevot, Anna Van Der Breggen and Annemiek Van Vleuten (winner of 2 stages) – broke the race in the first leg breaker trying to distance Abbott because of its qualities of much better wheels than the American, matching the same tactic that made a month earlier in the Emakumeen Bira (which took the 3 positions of the podium). Abbott defended himself from these attacks and was in sixth position 3 minutes from first place and 2 from the podium in the absence of the final two decisive stages. However, its numerical inferiority with respect to the corridors of the Dutch equipment was more than evident since they had five runners between the eight first ones, those before mentioned and Katarzyna Niewiadoma that had been placed seventh thanks to a flight. In the first of them he was able to cut half of that difference with respect to the lead and was only 20 seconds away from the podium that was taken by three Rabo Liv riders -Vos, Ferrand-Prevot and Van Der Breggen- . ] In the last stage, Mara was locked up and “locked” (taken to the side of the road to keep her from rolling comfortably) for those three runners making her attacks impossible not being able to advance any position and having to settle for the fourth position.


Although the specialized media did not give much importance to the unsportsmanlike movement of Rabo Liv runners various cyclists through social networks denounced this fact. The first was Valentina Scandolara asking that the competitors be respected followed by the cycroscopist Katherine Compton who was much harsher denouncing a “Euro-blockade” implying that it is a typical maneuver of the European runners. It must be mentioned that Compton disputes races where it may be habitual to block cyclists due to the narrow paths of cyclo-cross and that she has coincided several times in that discipline with Marianne Vos.

Transfer by the Wigle Honda, a new opportunity in Europe

In 2015 he decided to return to a European team to make the full season in Europe. For this he signed for the Wiggle Honda. Mara stated that “I am very excited to run a full season in Europe next year, and Wiggle Honda is offering me the perfect stage to do so.”
