#TeamProudfoot

Tom Gosselin As the National Sales Manager at Reynolds Cycling, my day follows a fairly consistent ritual: wake, eat, ride, work, eat, work, ride, race, ride, eat, sleep. Somewhere in there I find time to kiss my beautiful wife Lizzy and take my two dogs, Tugboat and Tanker, for a walk. On the weekends, I’m either training for a race, or racing.  For 2017 I’ll race the MTB_148 set up single speed at select I-Cup races in Utah, the Wasatch Back 50 and Dixie 200 in June, and the Park City Point-to-Point in September. When I’m not riding or racing my bike, you can either find me at the gym or under the gun of my friend, the talented tattoo artist Pete Lavigne. My power animal is a unicorn. If you can catch me on course, ask me about it and I’ll give you the whole story. I’ve been racing bikes as an amateur and a professional since I was eleven, so those of you out there that can catch me probably already know the story.

Colt Jones I am a 28 years old and was born and raised in Northern Colorado.  Being from northern Colorado lends itself to having a passion for being on 2 wheels.  Over the past 20 years I have spent the majority of my time riding dirt bikes and mountain bikes.  Initially, riding mountain bikes was purely training for racing dirt bikes but over the past 6 years dirt bikes have started taking a back seat to my ever growing mountain bike addiction.  Thankfully, my wife fully supports this addiction and is always chasing me down the trail making sure I am always giving 100%! Goals: My number 1 goal is completing the Colorado Trail before I turn 30. Riding mountain bikes is all about having fun for me.  As long as I am meeting new friends and riding awesome  trails with a smile on my face, I am achieving my goals.

Scott Beck Hi, I'm Scott. Oddly enough, I didn’t really start riding bikes until I turned sixteen in 2000. I bought a used Gary Fisher Mamba and promptly took it to Canyonlands where, over the course of three days, I rode the 104 White Rim Loop in boxers and cargo shorts. I was whooped but I loved it!  Two years later I moved to Durango, CO for my first year of college. College was a whirlwind of activity, I married my high-school sweetheart Rachele, started a career in management, and became truly hooked on the phenomenal Durango singletrack. After school, we moved to Corvallis, OR where I was exposed to the road racing culture and promptly caught the road bike bug. We got rained out of Oregon and moved back to Colorado’s front range. Shortly after returning to Colorado I began racing bikes while on the now defunct Team Evergreen Racing in the spring of 2007. Since 2007, I’ve raced and trained with several local teams and am currently riding with Racer X Cycling. I’ve had a lot of fun, won a few races, and made some great friends along the way. I met Jon and Erin Acuff while fatbiking with a mutual friend, Aaron. A long-time hand-built-bike enthusiast, I was immediately excited by the bicycles they were building. Jon was gracious enough to let me throw a leg over a Proudfoot and I promptly fell in love. I’ve now done thousands of miles and raced twenty-plus events on their bikes and loved every mile of it!

Craig Cormany   Hi Craig here.  I’m 45 years old and still playing with bikes.  I’ve been riding most of my life, from midnight 10 mile toilet papering missions on a BMX bike, to the Leadville 100. I enjoy being outdoors, biking, running & hiking in all parts of the Mountain west. I’m originally from Ohio, racing sprint distance triathlons and adventure races. Moving to West Virginia after college, I stepped gingerly into mountain bike racing at Mount Wood and Big Bear XC events. I really got into cross country racing after a move to Oklahoma though, eventually winning a “Tour De Dirt” series championship and a 24 hour race on a 4 man team. After moving to Colorado in 2010, I’ve gravitated towards longer events, completing the Gunnison Growler, Silver Rush 50, Bailey Hundo, Leadville 100 and Summer Grand Traverse several times. My latest adventures involve completing several of these races on single speed bike from Proudfoot!

Clint Jones I was born and raised in Loveland Colorado, and spent my youth exploring the state on motorcycles and bicycles with my dad and bothers. I started riding bikes when I was 5, got my first mountain bike when I was 11 and have been hooked ever since. Throughout the years I’ve dabbled in just about every aspect of cycling including cross country, bmx, road riding, trials, enduro, fat biking and downhill although, lately I’ve been focusing on cross country and a small amount of enduro racing. Three of the things that I’m most passionate about in life are my faith, family, and spending time on two wheels. Some of my other hobbies include rock climbing, trail running, and spending time outdoors with my two kids and beautiful wife, Tenae. My main goal in life is to be a father and husband that inspires my kids to live life to the fullest and follow their passions.
