Mars Hill Cycling is excited to announce the signing of Jake Possinger, a senior at Crestwood High School in White Haven, PA. Jake will initially join our mountain bike and cyclocross teams. Jake won the 2011 Mid-Atlantic Super Series as well as the 2011 Pennsylvania State Mountain Bike Championships. He also finished 2nd in the PACX cyclocross series last year.
Jake has been racing bikes for the last three years and is currently a member of the Cedar Bike Team out of Scranton, PA. He also brings to the team a diverse background off the bike that includes membership in the National Honor Society and competition in track and field. Jake is an accomplished mechanic who wrenches for Pocono Biking. He’s also an avid runner, cross country skier, and hiker.
Before joining Mars Hill in the fall, Jake will focus on winning the Mid-Atlantic Super Series and the PA State Championships for a second year in a row with a goal of qualifying for the 2013 National Mountain Bike Championships held in his home state in the Lehigh Valley.
Welcome to the team, Jake! We plan to announce another exciting addition to our men’s roster very soon.
