Rarely do cyclists arrive as freshmen with top level racing experience in all of the collegiate disciplines. The exception is Jeremiah Dyer, who will join Mars Hill Cycling in the fall and plans to race four disciplines: road, track, cyclocross, and mountain biking. We’re very excited about the talent and depth Dyer brings to our growing team.
Dyer’s racing experience stretches across disciplines as well as international borders. Dyer raced cyclocross in Belgium with the US National team as a part of their EuroCross Camp. He also raced with the national team in Germany and Switzerland as part of the US National Team’s Euro Mountain Bike Camp.
On the track, Dyer rode to several top-5 placings at last year’s national track championships in Frisco, TX, including a bronze medal in the scratch race. Dyer was recently invited to participate in the opening day festivities at the new Giordana Velodrome in Rock Hill, SC, and placed 4th in the points race against an elite field. On the road, he has a feared sprint but can go the distance too, as he demonstrated with a top-15 result at last summer’s national road championships in Augusta, Georgia.
Off the bike, Dyer spends time giving back to the cycling community by teaching kids about helmet safety and bike skills and has participated in cyclocross clinics for kids. Dyer recently graduated from high school early with a 3.4 GPA. He’s from Valdese, North Carolina, and is the son of Sonni and Sandy Dyer, who run an endurance coaching business, Studio 7 MultiSport.
Welcome to the team, Jeremiah!
