We’re excited to announce the addition of Jacob Hill to our roster starting this spring. Jacob will race for Mars Hill on the road and track while pursuing his academic interests in finance.
Jacob is from St. Petersburg, Florida. He got into cycling via his father, Pete Hill, a former cat. 3 racer. He started riding an ancient East German road bike when he was 11. A little later his stepmother, Elizabeth Morse, gave him a Cannondale which he rode in his first junior race where he finished 3rd out of three racers. Still, the experience gave him motivation and he caught the cycling fever.
After growing a little and training some, he upgraded to a cat. 4 in 2009 and for the next few years each April he upgraded again. Jacob attended the University of Central Florida for his freshman year then took a semester off to focus on cycling and start pursuing it with purpose. He’s going to continue both his education and cycling career with Mars Hill and continue to compete with the Stan’s NoTubes elite team.
Welcome to the team, Jacob!
