MEET YOUR COACH: ROB LEE

We’re very fortunate to have one of the top endurance coaches in the world, Rob Lee,  partnering with us to make sure that you are ready for anything that The U.P. has to offer. He’s been talking to Todd about the unique challenges of our terrain and has built these training plans on the outstanding TrainingPeaks platform.

ROB THE ATHLETE

Rob raced as an elite category cross country mountain bike athlete throughout the late 90s (ranked No.10 in the UK in 1998) before making a successful transition to solo endurance racing in 2003. He went on to become one of most successful and influential solo endurance racers in the UK. After accumulating an extensive collection of victories in big races in the UK, Europe and Canada, including a Masters 24 hour Solo World Championships title in 2005, he then progressed onto long-distance challenges. Rob was the first rider to complete the infamous South Downs Double unsupported. His palmarès includes victories in road racing, time trial, off-road duathlon, mountain bike cross country, cyclo-cross and mountain bike marathon. In 2013 Rob was inducted into the UK mountain biking Hall of Fame.

It’s all about community.

906 Adventure Team is a 501c3 Non-Profit based in Marquette, Michigan. Since 2014 we have been creating outdoor adventure experiences for youth through Adventure Bike Club and events like Polar Roll, The Crusher, and Marji Gesick. Our take on life is pretty simple – it’s an adventure. In life (and adventure) stuff doesn’t always go to plan. Things go wrong. Bad things happen to good people and you don’t overcome it by complaining or pointing fingers. The truth is adversity brings out the best of us – by taking us down unknown paths to find it. 

 

906 Adventure Team uses revenue from the events to support trail organizations and create more youth Adventure Teams. 

 

The Marji Gesick will donate $27,000 to local trails this year, bringing total trail donations since 2015 to $216,000. 

 

In 2022, with the help of corporate partners, we invested $40,000 in youth programs for three new Adventure Team communities. Resilience, confidence, community, and a sense of belonging have never been more important than it is for kids today. Adventure Teams help them “find their people”, the way you feel like you’ve found yours at Marji. 

 

We want you to know when you support 906 Adventure Team and the events you’re making life better here in Marquette County and in communities across the Midwest.
