Adam Swann

Adam was brought into the cycling world by some fellow riders who made a game of finding the drunkest people that were coming out of the bars in downtown. This started around 2005, and since then he has taken up endurance racing exclusively. He now finds himself in the upper percentile at most Michigan endurance races and is starting to complement his bike riding with running events. In 2010 Adam not only finished his first marathon, but crossed the finish line in just over 3 hours.

In the Stable: Giant Anthem full suspension 26”, Cannondale Scalpel Lefty 26", Giant OCR, 2006 KTM 250 XCW, Honda VTR 1000 Superhawk
In the Closet: Brooks Ghost 3, Asics Nimbus, Asics Cumulus, Adidas Kanadia TR 3 trail runners, Coming soon.... Redfeather snowshoes
Team Position: Racer, Club Rider

Other Interests:

You will typically find Adam at Stampede Die and Engineering, putting in an average of 60 hours of week. When he is not working or riding anything on two wheels (bicycle, motorcycle or dirt bike) he is spending time with his new wife Kristy. Adam states that he rides because it allows him to disconnect with the daily grind, and is a zen like experience for those few hours he is on his bike.
