"Every minute on a bike is a good minute"
Dave Wiens, the "Rockhound" is an exceptional athlete. A professional mountain biker for over 20 years, he has managed teams and is a fixture in the scene. With two US National Championships to his name, and a number of World Cup wins, in 2002 he was welcomed into the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame. His talent on the bike is still strong, and his six wins in a row of the legendary Leadville 100 race in Colorado attest to it. Not only that, but both Lance Armstrong and Floyd Landis are amongst the riders which he has beaten. "I never did any of this to be seen as a hero or a legend, and find it quite strange. I am just a guy who likes to ride his bike, and likes to give my all when doing it."
"Roll around the clock"
Jeff Kerkove loves to literally spend his day in the saddle. He has top results at some of the longest and hardest endurance mountain bike events in the USA. It never gets boring for Jeff, he just loves those varied high alpine routes that push the limits of the mind, body, and equipment. Afterwards he relaxes in front of his computer, surfing the net, and having a coffee. Jeff attaches great importance to these recovery phases. Simply, because he knows there is another long event or training session coming soon.
"On the sunny side of life"
Sonya Looney is someone who knows a thing or two about stamina and what it takes to perform. Since 2008 she has podiumed at every single endurance competition that she entered - Every One. Based in Colorado she will take what is thrown at her. 3 feet of snow - no problem, 4000m / 12,000' elevation - no problem. Sonya just gets out there. Sonya is the sunshine in the team - literally. A former solar design engineer, she has now moved across to playing with bikes for a living. Of course, not everything from her old job has been left behind. Her nickname is 'Sunny'.
Yuki Ikeda was born and raised in Tokyo. From an early age on he showed an enthusiasm and talent for sport. Initially indulged in basketball winning the national Japanese high school championship for two consecutive years. In 2003 he moved to the United States so naturally he took up basketball again... actually no, he didn't. He turned to mountain biking. In 2007 he went pro and remains to be the only Japanese rider on the NORBA circuit. His greatest success to date was winning the 12 hours of Snowmass and finishing the Rocky Mountain Ultra Endurance Series in second place. Along the way Yuki manages to take some time to coach other bikers from beginner to pro.
