Juliana-SRAM Pro Team rider Kelli Emmett might be taking podiums at enduro races these days, but, like Juli Furtado, her roots lay firmly in cross-country and she still puts in a serious amount of miles for training, racing, and fun. This weekend, she'll be racing the Crusher in the Tushar in central Utah aboard the all-new carbon Nevis. “With 10,000 feet of climbing set over 70 miles of gravel, pavement, and dirt, the Nevis launches just in time to be my ideal companion on this tough event.” Kelli will be joined by a team of Juliana employees and ambassadors to share the experience, and push each other along.
Hosted by the Eagle Point ski area outside of Beaver, Utah on July 11th, the Crusher is in its fifth year, and attracts racers of the highest caliber, as well as dedicated amateurs looking to test themselves on the course’s infamous climbs. And before you ask, “Tushar” is not a euphemism for one’s derrière, but the name of the mountains where the event takes place!
