TEAM CHUMBA USA
We are so proud of the riders who make up Team CHUMBA USA. Our group of riders consists of racers and explorers who are equally passionate about mountain biking and being leaders or mentors to the sport. We are lucky to include team riders who not only embody our mission at CHUMBA USA but who also push themselves to the limit. Whether they are going all out over the whole 2700+ miles of Tour Divide to compete for a top finish or exploring the backcountry and going where no bike has gone before we can count on these ladies and gents to put our bikes through the harshest conditions and come out smiling.
Bikes are my world. They’re my culture and my religion; a bridge marrying the division between all the worlds I exist in. Bikepacking is a way for me to connect with my mind, my body, and the Earth in ways I never was able to before. Participating in endurance races leaves room for a multitude of lessons to learn. Whether you cross the finish first, or overcome a mental hurdle, the victories in endurance racing are a plenty. It’s on the trail and in these events where I have found my heroes. The mad, mad trail is the only place in the entire world where I feel like I belong so when I hit the trail, it’s not going on vacation, it’s coming home.
