Heather grew up in Boulder, CO where she still resides with husband, Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski and her two dogs. She loves everything two wheeled and playing in the outdoors year round whether she’s riding bikes, motorcycles, skiing in the backcountry or just kicking it in the sunshine. Heather grew up taking regular family trips to Moab and Winter Park – her parents are incredible athletes and cyclists and have inspired Heather throughout her career.
Heather began racing at the age of 18 and continued to hone her skills as a member of the University of Colorado Cycling Team while earning her BA and MS degree in Applied Physiology. When not traveling the world competing as one of the top U.S. pro women mountain bikers, Heather enjoys the occasional acting or modeling gig, working on heavy duty house projects, food & wine shopping, cooking incredible dinners, baking scones, skiing, riding motos, and being at home with her friends and family.
