Helping Heather Irmiger rip the DH

Heather Irmiger — XC national champ, marathon national champ and singlespeed world champ — has asked me to help her descend at a world class level (and have more fun on her bike).

I am all over this project.

When we met at Valmont Bike Park I told her, with great respect for her accomplishments:

“Heather, yesterday was the last day you sucked at mountain biking.”

She was like, Right on, that was yesterday. Let’s rock this.

Heather dials in her “Position 1” while husband (and legendary pinner) Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski looks on.

JHK gives it a try.

Heather wanted to focus on cornering — and wow man she railed some corners.

After 100 pump track laps, we worked the Corkscrew trail. This was all about pumping that mid-turn roller.

Fast is fun. Fun is fast. Heather dives into The Corkscrew.

Me and Heather. I am super stoked for her. Her fitness + my kung fu = RAD!

Heather is a world class athlete with a great attitude. Stay tuned as she becomes a top descender and an Enduro threat.



Know more. Have more fun!
