Joshua Barry | Coach
I am a current professional national champion in the Team Time Trial. I have competed in the highest level of road, cyclocross, and mountain biking. I raced as a top level junior on the Mountain bike circuit, an experience that launched me into my professional cycling career. I was fortunate enough to be on the podiums in Short Track, Super D (Enduro) and Cross Country. I continued my success on the mountain bike with cyclocross. I missed the podium at nationals, but I made it to Europe with the U.S. national team as a U-23 racer to compete in world cups. Soon after, I earned a spot on to the world championship team, which I turned down to sign my first professional road contract. I earned top results as a young rider, and I moved to Europe while racing with the U.S. national program. I have had a professional license for a total of ten years and I have been lucky to work with some of the best coaches, riders, and teams in the world.
Having transitioned back to being a student and mountain bike racer, I unexpectedly jumped into the “Gravel” World. I signed up for Dirty Kanza to just keep me riding but I started dreaming pretty soon after. Eventually as school finished up for the semester, I hit the gas for four weeks and got ready to go. I was second, and worked with my friend who was first. I am looking to win the DK next year. This year and next year I want to hit all the big gravel events with some road and mountain races through out as training in order to keep my abilities light and fast over terrain that wants to eat tires. I am still in school, and that balance did wonders for me this winter. I can’t wait to show what I can do next, in this new genre called Gravel.
