Bobby Zidek

NorCal

My name is Bobby Zidek and I am 20 years old.  I am from Novato, CA and started riding mountain bikes at the age of 15 when I joined my high school’s mountain bike club.  This was a new experience for me after stopping a nine-year baseball career.  I had no idea what cycling was about until I showed up for the first ride completely unprepared.  I showed up with the determination to go fast and to finish.  The mountain bike team allowed me to compete in the NorCal High School Mountain Bike race league from 2008 to 2011 where I became a consistent top 5 finisher.  Becoming apart of this organization at such a young age was extremely motivating for me.  Riding became more than an activity for me, but a passion.  From 2008 to 2011, I was a member of the Whole Athlete Cycling Team which became one of the most influential aspect’s of my life.  This experience allowed me to gain a mass amount of knowledge about the proper techniques to training, eating right, and racing.  Here I was able to create a network of connections, friends, and experiences that I would have never been apart of.  In 2011, I moved to Chico, CA to begin a new adventure as a student at Chico State University.  In Chico, I was able to continue riding on a daily basis and this is where I met Kyle.  Kyle was the talk of the town for his unbelievable skills on a bike and together we have decided to team up and work together to track down our dreams as professional mountain bikers and travel the country from race to race.
