Senior Mentor Squad

Kurt Schmid

Kurt stays onboard for the second year as a mentor for both his daughter Kaia, and the rest of our juniors. Kurt began his sports career as a mogul skier, moving through the amateur ranks before turning professional. After his retirement from skiing, he began coaching freestyle skiing while turning his own competitive nature to cycling in 2000, quickly earning his professional XC mountain bike license before moving to cyclocross and the road in 2008. His love for all aspects of the sport led him and his daughter to the New England Regional Track Omnium Championships this past fall where he won the bronze medal with Kaia becoming the women’s overall champion. Kurt runs an optics manufacturing company by day and will be looking to continue his success and love for riding, both on dirt and on pavement, on the weekends in 2018.
