Riders, Mechanics and Teams

Enduro Bearings is thrilled to partner with a such talented group of professional riders, mechanics and teams.
Here's a little bit of background on everyone along with their Instagram handle for your 'following' consideration. 

Amy seemingly never runs short on do-good-things energy. She is a high school teacher, a coach, a three-time U.S National Enduro and two-time U.S. National Downhill Champion. Growing up as a competitive barefoot water-skier and pole vaulter laid the competitive foundation for Amy’s quick climb to the top of the podium box in both downhill and enduro racing. In 2023, she will be racing on a Transition bike fitted the Enduro Maxhit components and MAX suspension. In April, look for Amy in Grass Valley, California defending last year’s win at the TDS Invitational. Insta: @amymo_11

Anna is a rising star and Enduro is thrilled to support her transition from student, bike rider and surfer to pro cyclist. A soon-to-be Cal Poly SLO graduate with a degree in architectural engineering, Anna recently won the Rock Cobbler and will focus on gravel and marathon mountain bike racing including the Lifetime Grand Prix and possibly take on Xterra Nationals as well. In addition to Enduro Bearings, Anna’s first full professional season will be supported by Specialized and Clif Bar with friendly assistance from Enduro Ambassadors Katerina Nash and Geoff Kabush.

Geoff Kabush and Enduro have been spinning together for a few years now.  With more top-shelf gold than a Zale's jewelry store, this 3-time Olympian, 15-time Canadian and 5-time NORBA champion says: "I'll keep riding until the fun stops!" Yeti Cycles, Maxxis and Shimano also support Geoff, a guy who enjoys wrenching on bikes, mountain living, skiing in the off-season, and is an unabashed bookworm, sports nut and coffee nerd. Geoff contributes thoughtful op-ed and lifestyle articles to publications like CyclingTips and PinkbikeInsta: @geoffkabush 

began racing at age 14 and over the next 20 years his riding got a little out of hand. Progressing through 24-hour races, stage races and onto bikepacking and ultra-races. Josh can now be found racing his bike across continents or sleeping behind a bush at the side of the trail. A past winner of the Transcontinental Race and GBDuro, in 2023 Josh will be doing his very best to test Enduro Bearings to their limits at the Highland Trail 500 and the Silk Road Mountain race.

Fluent in both Czech and English, Katerina Nash admits to being a bad speller in two languages. But wow, can she ride a bike and multitask! A 5-time Olympian, 8-time World Cup winner and 2-time Olympic bronze medalist, Nash is also the current UCI Athletes Commission President and a UCI VP. In addition to Enduro; Specialized, CLIF Bar and Shimano offer support to one of our favorite riders who also happens to be a dog lover, hiker, and world-class Nordic and backcountry skier. Insta: @katkanash

Bearings happily welcomes Marco Osborne to our ambassador crew in 2023. Marco grew up riding and racing MTBs with his best childhood friends, and NorCal legends Mark Weir and Ben Cruz. His first big pro win came in 2014 at Mammoth Mountain. In town for an enduro, Marco shocked the downhill scene with a US Pro GRT win – on his enduro bike. His resume is loaded with wins and podiums including 2017 and 2019 championships in France at the week-long Trans-Provence Enduro. Marco loves traveling the world, mixing camping and fishing into his pro enduro and downhill racing schedule.  Insta: @marco0sborne92

Hailing from the middle of the UK, interrupted by a 4-year vacation in the French Alps, and now living in the stunning Lake District, it's all about getting out riding for Meg. Be that a Hike-A-Bike with her Giga or gravel adventures on the Digger. She’s not shy of the competition side of riding either haven raced European Cups, Enduro World Series, National Series and Gravel epics. Better known as the Shark, she’s not afraid to get her teeth stuck into new projects. Insta: @meg_whyte

An Enduro Bearings' rising star, Myles is also sponsored by Evil Bikes and Wilderness Trail Bikes. Myles' smooth, quick style catapulted him into the upper echelon, highlighted by his 2022 TDS championship and 2nd in the 2021 North American Enduro Cup. Rock climbing, snowboarding and attending Western Washington University keep Myles busy when he's not clicking-off fast times at enduro events around the world. Insta @_myles.m

Not too long ago, Whitney was commuting to work on a 1985 Peugeot when she caught sight of a group ride. In 2017, she purchased a proper road race bike and by 2019 she had left her day job to explore the country as a bike racer. Within a few months, Whitney was lining up with the best professional women in road and gravel racing and in 2021 she won the Belgium Waffle Ride Triple Crown. A solid 2022 road racing season featured lots of top-tens and a handful of podiums. In 2023, Whitney’s racing calendar will be equal parts gravel and road. Insta: @rustygrrl_rustydg

After Yuri Hauswald graduated from UC Berkeley, he taught elementary school for 11-years. Then Yuri realized he could ride bikes fast...all...day...long, highlighted by winning 24-hour MTB races and the 2015 Unbound gravel race, in a two-up sprint after 200 miles. Often called the 'Gandalf of Gravel' or the 'Pied Piper of RIde Stoke', Yuri is always ready to explore gravel roads and singletrack at race or chill pace. In addition to Enduro, his sponsors include GU, Sportful and Giant Bicycles. Insta: @yurihauswald

Enduro is thrilled to add ButcherBox Cycling to our rider, mechanic and team ambassador mix. A criterium first, road race second and forget about dirt professional men’s and women’s team, ButcherBox Cycling often relies on its riders to maintain their equipment. It only makes sense for the team to spin on Enduro’s trouble-free, durably fast XD15 super stainless / ceramic-hybrid bottom brackets, hub bearings and Directline derailleur pulleys. ButcherBox Cycling will compete at American Criterium Cup events, the Nocturne Series and select stage races and one-day road races throughout the USA. Insta: @butcherboxcycling

CCB-Alpine Carbon p/b Levine Law Group is an Elite Women’s Cycling Team guiding talented, young athletes to success both on and off the bike. 2023 marks the second year Enduro Bearings is supporting this 12-rider, multi-discipline elite women’s program. On road, the team will continue CCB's history of criterium and road racing success. Outside city limits, the team will venture into the dirt with gravel and MTB racing on their 2022 calendar.

Enduro is happily throwing a shoulder behind ‘MFR’ alongside our long-time OEM partners Stan’s No Tubes and Ibis. Look for 2022 Lifetime GP winner Haley Smith and Andrew L’Esperance at gravel and MTB events including the Life Time GP and UCI World Cups. Gravity athletes Colton Peterson and Lia Westermann will target events such as the Big Mountain Enduro and North American EWS rounds. The team will be guided by the steady, experienced hands of team manager Drew Esherick. Insta: @maxxisfactoryracing 

In celebration of shade tree mechanics and riders that forgo oiling their chain to sneak-in one more ride, Enduro Bearings is partnering with Syd and Macky.

Jenny Kallista is all-in when it comes to proper bicycle maintenance and repair. She founded the Appalachian Bicycle Institute on her 30-year journey as a professional mechanic, teaching a variety of one-to-five day classes catering to both career-minded and shade tree mechanics. A former MTB and road racer, Jenny still enjoys all that two wheels have to offer. When not sharing best practices with aspiring mechanics, Jenny enjoys riding ADV motorbikes, ceramics, and exploring the beautiful North Carolina mountains.  Insta: @appalachianbicycleinstitute

Anait Garushyants left Russia for the USA in 2013 to reunite with her family. Here, she continued to pursue a bicycle mechanic career while learning English on the fly. Then in 2016, Ana and her partner pooled resources to open a bike shop in Huntingdon Valley, PA. Away from the shop, Ana rides MTB, enjoys reading, hiking and snowboarding and has gravel and road bikes on the N+1 wish list. Insta: @ana_8g

Cycle Chvch Cycles owner Tim Nicholls shares 23-years of wrenching smarts with his customers and moonlights as Yuri Hauswald’s trusted race mechanic. Prior to opening the bike shop, Tim worked with renowned builder Bruce Gordon, spent a few years at Paul Components and turned wrenches at bicycle retailers throughout California. Away from CCC, Tim hugs his family and rides BMX bikes, singlespeeds and motorcycles.  "If you think you are too old to rock 'n roll then you are." is Tim’s favorite quote. Insta: @cyclechvchcycles
