Gavin Hoover joined the USA Men’s Pursuit Cycling Track Team two years ago when it was reborn, unified with his teammates by one singular goal: qualify for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

Julian Carr, a pro-skier, is best known for skiing massive cliffs and big backcountry lines. In the off season, he used to mountain bike for fitness. That was, until he got his dog, Lexie. He couldn't take her on most rides, so he started running with her on mountain trails near his home. Eventually, the Cirque Series was born.
