The film, Personal Gold (, just screened at the Newport Beach Film Festival!

Heralded as “Miracle on Ice-meets-Moneyball” by Wall Street Journal reporter Reed Albergotti, “Personal Gold” gives a behind-the-scenes experience of four underdog women cyclists who become America’s hope for a medal at the 2012 London Olympics after the men’s team was banned during the Lance Armstrong drug scandal.

The underfunded women relied on technology and the beauty of freindship, in an innovative “Data not Doping” training regimen to do the impossible – win the first U.S. Women’s Track Cycling medal in more than 20 years.

One of these cyclists in the film is Dotsie Bausch, an Irvine home owner and passionate Orange County resident for over 10 years. She is an eating disorder survivor, USN/NBC sports analyst, motivational speaker and animal rights advocate.

During the 2002 off-season, professional cyclist Dotsie Bausch launched her highly successful personal coaching business, which was originally women-specific. Through positive word-of-mouth, Bausch swiftly doubled her business and she began coaching men as well. Producing results for clients has enabled her business to grow each year as has her reputation for being a knowledgeable coach, enthusiastic motivator, and trusted resource for guidance, information and feedback that is second-to-none. Bausch’s coaching philosophy stresses the importance of personalized training programs tailored specifically for the individual with a methodology that emphasizes a mind and body balance.

A 7-time U.S. National Champion and a 2x Pan Am Championships gold medal winner, Bausch is in her fourteenth year of racing. She has spent ten years as a member of the U.S. National Team and has competed in the biggest races around the world for professional teams including T-Mobile, Colavita-Sutter Home and Ouch Pro Cycling. When not racing, she heads up the SC Velo presented by Empower Coaching Systems Southern California based women's road team, which she serves as captain and a mentor to young riders new to the professional peloton. In August of 2012, Bausch became an Olympian and competed on the track in the 2012 London Olympic Games where she won a silver medal alongside her team mates Jennie Reed, Lauren Tamayo and Sarah Hammer in the women's team pursuit event.

While Bausch has scored major victories and impressive results on the bike, perhaps her greatest victory came from resurrecting her own life from the depths of severe eating disorders, which threatened to take her life over a decade ago after a promising modeling career in New York City. It was during her recovery that she discovered her passion for cycling. Bausch’s inspiring personal story has been chronicled in the media and she makes herself available to support women and men around the world in their battle to return to healthy eating and living.

The Louisville, Kentucky native is also a color commentator for Universal Sports network and a journalist for, who resides with her husband, Kirk, in Irvine, California.
