Have fun and don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Cycling is a hard sport physically and mentally, if you’re having fun and are confident, you will set yourself up for success.

Sepp Kuss grew up mountain biking (while participating in other sports like skiing, kayaking, running, and hockey). Eventually he decided to pursue cycling. After three years racing domestically and internationally on the mountain bike where he represented the United States at two World Championships, he started to gravitate towards road racing. Kuss immediately fell in love with the dynamic nature of the racing and discovered he could be a factor in road races, especially when the road tilted uphill. In 2016, Kuss signed my first professional contract with Rally Cycling and is currently a senior at the University of Colorado Boulder, majoring in Advertising.

What inspired you to ride?

The Durango Devo mountain bike program instilled me with a love for cycling that goes beyond competition. The experiences I had growing up in this program still inspire me today.

Racing obstacle you overcame?

Over-thinking before and during races. One I freed myself from my own standards and expectations, I turned into a more confident bike racer and training and racing became much more enjoyable.

Favorite cheat meal?

Taco Bell

Favorite healthy meal or snack?

Kale smoothie with ginger.

Tip for staying healthy?

Reduce stress in your daily life by finding activities and foods that are not only healthy, but most importantly, make you happy.

What motivates you to ride?

Simply being outside is enough motivation. In addition, having an objective for every training day and race makes riding more motivating and purposeful.
