Over the past 16 years, Kelli has become one of the most unique ambassadors in the sport of cycling. From the very beginning, Kelli's laid-back approach suited her well as she traveled the world, competing amongst the top cross country and cyclocross racers. Currently, she races full-time with the Juliana/SRAM Enduro Mountain Bike Team, competing in 8 different countries for the Enduro World Series. When she's off the bike, Kelli is part owner of a handcrafted energy bar company called Enduro Bites, if you haven't tried one before... snag one and let her know what you think! You can also find Kelli instructing for VIDA MTB Clinics in Colorado and coaching her athletes with Athletic Mentors. She loves interacting with people on the bike and showing others how to push themselves beyond what they ever imagined is possible. She know's Tucson roads like the back of her hand, and we're so pumped up to have her energy for the week!

The youngster. Alex is from Flagstaff, AZ although she grow up racing for the Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club out of Aspen, Colorado. After competing at the Junior Olympics & countless US National events, Alex fell in love with the sport of riding bikes of all kinds... especially if there's rippin' downhill involved!! I (Heidi) had the opportunity to witness her first enduro race back when she was 18 years old. Years later, she will be graduating with a BS in biomedical science & chemistry.
