Tucker has fully embraced growing up in the cycling hot-spot of Northwest Arkansas: you can find him rambling on NWA's extensive gravel roads, shredding on the ever-expanding network of mountain bike trails, and pushing the pace on the local road rides. He blasted onto the national race scene with a win at Rebecca's Private Idaho in 2020, and has since been stepping up his training game and setting his sights on a variety of race events from the Oz Cup Cross Country races to the Steamboat Gravel race and the Epic Rides Oz Trails Off-Road. He earned a well-deserved spot on the Bissell ABG Giant Cycling Team in 2021.
"I am 16 years old and I ride for Bissell ABG Giant Cycling Team (@bissellabgiant) an elite gravel and mountain bike team. I live in Bentonville, Arkansas home of some of the best gravel and trails ever!
I am passionate about racing and training. The more I train and get stronger the more motivated I am for races!
Three of my best accomplishments would be a 1st place for the virtual RPI Queens Stage race, 1st junior for the Dirty South Roubaix, and 2nd and 3rd at the US Cup MTB races in Fayetteville, AR.
This year in 2021 I would like to be able to perform my best in all my races but most importantly have a fun time traveling with the best people!
