The dust has settled from Cyclocross World Championships in Luxembourg this weekend, and the Aspire Racing team is back in the US after an eventful few weeks. Ellen Noble scored the silver medal in the U23 Women’s race, making her one of the very few Americans to finish on a World Championship podium.
“It was always my dream to create a program that helped riders reach their dreams, with more ease and more opportunities than I had coming up. To watch Ellen be in the fight for the win of the women’s U23 World Championships was a big moment in my world,” teammate and team owner Jeremy explained. “The energy that we’ve put into the JAM Fund over the past eight years has been a complete passion project and to have something that not just me, but our entire community, was able to be a part of—including those reading this—is, for me, one of the biggest achievements of my racing life.”
“The World Championships were really the ribbon around an awesome season,” Ellen added. “With the help of my amazing team, I met—and exceeded—all of my goals for the year. I feel like I had the best race of my career on Saturday, and it resulted in a silver medal. I am still smiling! Overall, the season has been so fantastic and I feel so fortunate to have has Aspire pushing me and supporting me every step of the way.”
“I’m really proud we have a World Championship result to hang our hat on with our effort to provide a better way to get to the top of the cross totum pole, but truly, without any of the results, we already had a lot to smile about,” Jeremy concluded. After a full season of amazing racing and results, it’s easy to see that the JAM Fund program works—and that Aspire Racing provides the pro platform to help riders excel. “To see the next generation coming in… It’s a different kind of happiness that just makes you feel good and look forward to what the future holds,” he adds.
Ellen’s cyclocross season is done, and she’s off to Spain to build up a base and start training in earnest for her upcoming road season.
