Green Mountain Off-Road, Inc
Geen Mountain Off-Road is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed to revive the legacy of Green Mountain Cyclocross race and to support our CX race team. Our mission is to increase and support participation of junior athletes and women and gender-diverse (WGD) athletes in the sport of cyclocross.
Ben Coleman - Executive Director
Ben Coleman has been racing bikes for over 20 years. He got his start in cross-country mountain biking at age 14, and has been racing across several disciplines, including cyclocross, ever since. He now focuses on endurance mountain biking, but his love for cyclocross and the associated community remains. In 2021 he founded Green Mountain Off-Road, Inc. and re-launched Green Mountain Cyclocross. Outside of cycling, Ben works as a speech and language pathologist, enjoys backcountry skiing, and lives in Williston with his wife, Kim, their two kids, and their enthusiastic border collie, Pepper.
Kim Coleman - Co-Founder
Kim Coleman is Ben Coleman’s right hand person. She jokes that her role at Green Mountain Off-Road is to walk behind Ben with an imaginary trash bag and pick up everything that falls off his proverbial plate, hence her title “Chief Clean Up Liaison”. In short, she ties up the loose ends. Kim is also a mom of two incredible little humans, wife to Ben, an elite cyclocross racer, and a college professor at SUNY Plattsburgh’s Center for Earth and Environmental Science. She loves a good, long coffee shop ride, especially the kind that involve lots of dirt roads, good friends, and donuts.
