Ambassador | Heather Irmiger
/ What is your favorite style of riding?
Mountain biking of any flavor - epic trail rides, tough singlespeed rides. I love being out on the trail, whether it's a destination far from home or commuting and riding on the trails around Boulder.
/ How long have you been riding?
I've been riding mountain bikes for about 20 years, 15 of those years racing professionally. During the past 15 years, I've coached a number of clinics for women and juniors, as well as riding with clients on Trek Travel trips.
/ Any race plans this season?
Yes - racing on the Trek Factory Enduro Team with a focus on the Big Mountain Enduro series, a few NAET events, possibly a stage race.
/ How are you involved in your cycling community?
The Enduro race community is the rebirth of the mountain bike scene - my husband (Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski) and I road trip, camp, share beers with friends, ride and share stories every chance we get. Jeremy and I are well-known in the mountain bike race community and beyond - we have a solid reach in social media and everyday life. In addition to our involvement as professional athletes, we participate in community events such as clinics, high school race programs and travel/lifestyle trips.
/ What other activities and sports do you like to do?
Hiking, running, weight/fitness training, backcountry skiing, yard work, yoga
/ What is your favorite piece of Club Ride?
The Cross Vest - the fit is superb and I LOVE the fabric detailing on the front. I find myself hoping for days that are chilly enough to wear it.
