There’s only one way to describe Kelli Emmett as a mountain bike racer: adventurous. One week she’s wearing a skinsuit and railing her hardtail in a pro XC race, the next she’s wearing a full-face helmet and charging a gnarly Euro enduro race. Kelli is the type of rider that can’t be categorized. And that’s how she likes it. For her, racing is a way to see the world in her own way. It’s just as much about the in between time—the road tripping, the camping, the exploration of new trails—as it is the racing itself. What does Kelli love most about her lightweight, powerful Avid brakes? Easy: They let her focus less on the bike and more on Chasing Trail.
