24 Hours in the Old Pueblo Dedicated to National Champion Couple Heather Irmiger and Jeremy Horgan-Kolbelski.
January 20, 2015
Epic Rides announced the 16th Annual 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo presented by Tucson Medical Center is dedicated to legendary mountain bike racing couple, Heather Irmiger and Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski.
Each year the biggest 24-Hour mountain bike event in the country features a theme, and because the 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo kicks off on Saturday, February 14 at high noon - Valentine’s Day - this year's theme is focused on love. In the name of love, the 2015 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo is dedicated to not just one person, but a couple who have racked up more than 15 National Championship titles between them and accolades including 2004 Olympic Mountain Bike Team member, a Gold Medal at the Pan Am Games, and to keep it real, a Singlespeed World Champion tattoo.
As focused, driven and successful as they are, Heather Irmiger and Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski - aka JHK - never take their careers too seriously, always finding time to step back and just enjoy riding with each other and traveling the country with their dog, Crash. Heather and JHK's love for the bike is forever tied to their love for one another; a unifying source of strength that neither one of them ever takes for granted.
"The achievements both Heather and Jeremy have attained in their professional racing careers are remarkable," said Todd Sadow, President of Epic Rides. "But even more remarkable is their dedication to one another through it all, spending more than 200 days a year on the road traveling together while navigating the ups and downs of being full-time professional athletes."
This celebration of love and the careers of Heather and JHK kicks off on Friday February 13 at 6p with a Social Hour in the 24 Hour Town Exchange Tent. At 7p Blue Banjo BBQ will serve up the perfect pre-race Old Pueblo spread. The evening continues with guest speakers and the crowd-favorite Cirrus Visual coloring contest.
Dinner tickets cost $20 and are limited to the first 100 people. Live music will be compliments of Cadillac Mountain.
