Kyle Strait

Mountain Bike

With his out-of-nowhere win at the 2001 Sea Otter Classic, Kyle was hailed as “the next Ryan Nyquist.” He squeeezes in NORBA competitions, World Cup contests, and global one-off events such as Red Bull Rampage. Kyle won the 2004 Red Bull Taxco Downtown with a 60-foot gap jump as well as the 2005 Red Bull Valparaiso Downtown. But his most exciting competition was the 2004 World Junior Downhill Championships in France. Kyle’s third-place finish was his first World Championship podium and the only downhill medal awarded to a U.S. rider. Read more about Kyle Strait

    If given the challenge, you’d have a harder time finding a race that Nino Schurter HASN’T won in his professional mountain biking career, rather than the alternative. The Swiss cross-country specialist has two Olympic medals to his name (bronze in 2008 in Beijing and silver in 2012 in London), two UCI Mountain Bike World Championships (2009, 2012), double digit career UCI Mountain Bike World Cup victories as well as two overall World Cup titles (2010, 2012).
