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. 

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 

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

An Enduro Bearings' rising star, Myles is also sponsored by Evil Bikes and Wilderness Trail Bikes. In 2021, Myles' smooth, quick style catapulted him into the upper echelon, highlighted by 3rd U21 at EWS Crans Montana, 2nd at TDS and 2nd in the 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_ 

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, Velocio and Garmin. Insta: @yurihauswald   

Two programs, the Levine Law Group Elite Women’s Cycling Team (LLG Cycling) and CCB Racing are joining forces on a common mission: guiding talented, young athletes to success both on and off the bike. Enduro Bearings is joining Sportful and Cannondale in supporting this 12-rider, multi-discipline elite women’s program. On road, the team will continue LLG’s history of criterium and road racing success. Outside city limits, LLG-CCB 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 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. Join us as we follow two dirt loving professional riders who chronicle the good, the frustrating and the fun that accompanies riding and racing at an elite level, long road trips and DIY maintenance and repairs.  Check out their two YouTube channels -- Syd Fixes Bikes for repair and maintenance and Syd and Macky to follow their pro racing adventures. Insta: @sydandmacky  

Jenny Kallista is all-in when it comes to proper bicycle maintenance and repair. She founded the Appalachian Bicycle Institute on her 25-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 also serves as President of the Professional Bicycle Mechanics Association. When she’s not sharing best practices with aspiring mechanics, Jenny enjoys riding ADV motorbikes, ceramics, and hiking in 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. She also serves on the Board of Directors of the Professional Bicycle Mechanic Association. 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

In 2013, Danielle Castelli Strader founded Torrenti Cycles in Fuquay Varina, NC, first as a mobile repair service that now includes a retail location carrying Scott and KHS bikes.  Never one to dawdle, Danielle recently launched Neutral Support News, an online bicycle mechanic resource and she serves as VP for the Professional Bicycle Mechanics Association. Danielle rides and hikes, occasionally accompanied by her two trail cleaning goats! Insta: @torrenticycles @neutralsupportnews  

Dan Large is a bike industry icon. Dan owns XL Velo in San Diego and has worked neutral support for Mavic, SRAM and Volvo NRS at hundreds of races. A Navy vet, he also teaches at USAC's Bill Woodul Race Mechanics Clinic and worked for Campy back in the day; after being a US Forest Service firefighter and part-time bartender. He loves all kinds of music and vintage motorcycles. But mostly Dan wants to let you know: "San Diego burritos are the best!" Insta: @xl_velo

Katie Colesberry was the 2019 silver medalist at Toolbox Wars World Championships and we'd like to think Enduro’s precision bearing R&R tools played a key role. In truth, Katie’s years of acquired knowledge as a shop mechanic, Campy and SRAM certified technician and USA Cycling race mechanic are what got her on the podium. Katie raced to a Sacramento CX Championship back in the day and currently works at Giant/Liv USA as a quality control specialist. She also loves photography and twisting throttles.

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
