CamelBak Announces its 2018 Roster of RidersNew additions to Team CamelBak Include Jill Kintner, Mitch Ropelato and Alison Tetrick
Petaluma, Calif. (Jan. 25, 2018) – As the original and leading name in hydration, CamelBak is pleased to announce its most accomplished Bike Team roster to date. In addition to the many riders returning to the team, CamelBak welcomes the winningest US Female rider of all time, Jill Kintner, Enduro World Series (EWS) rider Mitch Ropelato and 2017 Dirty Kanza winner Alison Tetrick to its athlete team for the first time.
Jill Kintner adds a royal touch to the CamelBak roster, with a long list of career accolades including 3 UCI world titles, an Olympic bronze medal and multiple Queen of Crankworx titles. CamelBak will be alongside Kintner as she takes on her latest feat, conquering races from this year’s EWS.
Known for his breakneck speeds, smooth style, and ability to hit lines that most would claim were impossible, Mitch Ropelato will take on the full EWS schedule for the first time. Named King of Crankworx at just 19, Ropelato gathered momentum very early in his career and hasn’t stopped. Catch him kick off his season at the first EWS race in at LoBarnechea, Chile this March.
Alison Tetrick will represent CamelBak in some of the toughest feats of endurance – 100+ mile races on the gravel road. A champion on the road, last year Tetrick decided to take on a new challenge, the legendary gravel race, Dirty Kanza. After 11 hours and 40 minutes in the flint hills of Emporia, Kansas, she crossed the finish line in first place smashing the course record.
