NiteRider proud to support USA MTB champion Jari Kirkland

NiteRider is proud to announce that we have secured the ongoing support of one of the USA’s leading female MTB riders, Jari Kirkland.

Jari boasts a number of impressive race results from the past few years including 2 x National 24 hour champion, World record holder for a female total distance ridden in 24 hours set in Moab. Jari has won the 24 Hours of Grand Targhee,  18 hrs of Fruita, Montezuma’s revenge, 24 hrs of Old Pueblo, the Vapor Trail 2X (with the course record), 2nd at the 24 hr Solo World Champs.

Jari holds the  women’s record for the Elk Mountain Grand Traverse (an all night back country ski race from Crested Butte to Aspen) and has won the event several times.  She has been 3rd at the Adventure Racing World Champs twice, and she is the winner of countless adventure races.

Jaris notes that; ” My season is going to start with 6 hrs of Frog Hollow.  Then the 12 hrs of Mesa Verde followed by 24 hrs of Spokane.  Then on to the Coeur d’Alene Ironman.  I have a Xterra race also this summer.  Followed by a few more daylight MTB races.

My goal is to compete in 5 world championships in 2015.  I have already been to Verbier Switzerland for the Ski Mountaineering World Championships (last week), then Ironman, Xterra, 24 mt bike solo, and Adventure Racing.  Could be a sweet year ”
