On a typical Saturday morning - while most of us are still asleep or just starting in on our first cup of coffee - you’ll find Kevin Girkins cranking his way toward Lake Travis on the shoulder of Highway 71. As one of the best amateur riders in the country, there is not a spare moment that Kevin doesn’t seem to be training for his next competition. This year, Kevin rode with Elbowz Racing in many of the nation’s most prominent races, including Joe Martin, Tulsa Tough, North Star and Nationals. And, later this fall, he's on the road again for some more great competition. To say the least, it's amazing to work with someone so dedicated to racing and an added bonus that he's incredibly humble and down-to-earth. We caught up with him after one of his typical 60+ mile Saturday rides and talked with him about what’s a part of his essential summer weekend ride.
