My name is Adam Croft. I’m from Toano, VA. When I was 7, I realized I loved riding my bike. Whether it was just around the yard, or going on easy road rides with my dad, it was always a blast. From there, I started getting more serious about cycling and began racing road and mountain bike on the weekends. For me, the thrill was being able to race the men’s races, and do my best to race people that I looked up to. As I grew older, and moved up through categories, the racing became more serious. My parents traveled and took me to junior nationals to race every year. Racing has certainly been awesome with my family there to support me. I can’t thank them enough.

Now when I’m not racing or doing school, I’m working for an HVAC and plumbing company. I love the physical aspect of it and helping people. In the winter, hunting takes up most of my time while I fill the freezer for the coming year, and have fun while doing it.

Bear Development has certainly been an amazing opportunity in racing. The support and people make the traveling and racing easier and more fun, and the friendships we make while together at races will last a lifetime.
