September 05, 2016
EVENT DATE Sep 10, 2016
Very PROUD to say that I was selected the represent the United States at the 2016 Mountain Bike World Championships in Val di Sole, Italy. The US does not cover the cost of the trip. I would appreciate your consideration on helping me, my bike, tools, and spare parts make this trip.
After five years going full competition mode, Joshua Rogers, returns to Junior Elite 17-18 with thirty-one podiums over forty-six races and his final year before turning Pro. His 2015 season exceeded all expectations with a sixth place at the Gravity Nationals, top twenty quallies in both North American World Cups (MSA and Windham), and the privilege of sporting the Stars and Stripes in Andorra on Team USA at the World Championships.
Now it's 2016 and I've been named to the 2016 World Championship Team again. I'm honored and delighted to put on the red, white and blue jersey again.
My dad and mom have worked very hard supporting me in my dream. They split their time between my racing and my little sister's competitive volleyball. My dad saves all his vacation each year just take me to all the races. I have traveled all over the US and have made so many friends. My dad calls them extended family. This year alone I have raced in Port Angeles, WA, Angel Fire, NM, Lenzerheide, Switzerland, Mammoth, CA, Killington, VT, and Mont Sainte-Anne, Canada.
I still have Snowshoe, WV, Vallnord, Andorra then World Champs in Italy. Very excited.
USA Cycling funds the number 1 and 2 riders. I'm not one of those riders but they are awesome riders and friends. The money will be used to pay for my travel to and from Val di Sole, bike baggage fees, transportation and the fee to USA Cycling.
