Meet the Crew
John is a native Coloradan who has been a bike fanatic ever since stepping over one in 2009. While his time in cycling has been short, he makes up for it in his rabid dedication to the sport. Having tried almost every piece of apparel the industry had to offer, he decided that most of it wasn’t worth the fabric it was printed on. Enter RAD Apparel. John knew there was a better way to make awesome clothing that performed as it should on the trail but didn’t break the bank.
Ryan, who happens to be John’s little brother has been working in the cycling industry since 2010. He has held positions in various different bike shops, most notably Colorado Cyclist and the award-winning Boulder Cycle Sport. Ryan manages the day to day operations of RAD Apparel. Got questions about one of our pieces of apparel, or just want to talk bikes? Ryan's your man.
Adam is also another Colorado native and serves as the lead ambassador and events coordinator for RAD Apparel. Need someone to help set up and run an event tent with two hours notice? Adams your guy. Gotta have somebody that is so crazy about bikes and living the RAD lifestyle that you can actually feel the passion when you talk to him? Adam's your guy. Adam is a jack of all trades and has the riding skills to back it up.
Growing up in upstate New York, Tarek was surrounded by the outdoors from an early age. He was quickly introduced to mountain biking in 2012, and quickly moved to Colorado to continue chasing that passion. Over the last 5 years he has transitioned his sites to enduro and downhill, while racing across the United States at a national level. When not mountain biking, Tarek loves hiking, skiing, and snowboarding. In addition to his racing goals, Tarek wants to continue working with the community to strengthen the bond between the trails of Colorado and the community that uses them.
From a young age I have always loved riding and racing motocross. Throughout my teenage years I raced amateur motocross in Arizona, Texas and Nevada. Three and a half years ago I bought my first mountain bike and never looked back. My main focus is on Enduro and Downhill, with a little bit of Freeride on the side. Now I am traveling the country with my wife and dog looking for the best trails this country has to offer while trying my best to spread the stoke! I live to ride trails with good friends and nothing beats making new friends along the way.
I'm Gabe, a full time college student, barista, bartender, distillery assistant and Enduro racer. Ive race for the last 6 years, the last two being in the pro field. while landing on some podiums along the way. Most notably the 2019 national championship Enduro. My favorite ride in the Front Range area would have to be Elk Park to the Missing Link.
