Cody Kelley Interview!! July 2017 -

YETIFAN Caught up with Cody Kelley between racers, and asked him about wheel sizes (yawn), Yeti DJ’s, and bikes..............

codykelleyinterview41) tell us a little about you? Where from, age, and what outside of bikes do you like?

I'm 23 years old, born and raised in Salt Lake City, UT. I don't do a whole lot away from bikes honestly. For the most part all of my friends ride and I don't really feel the need to look for any other hobbies.

 

2) you starting racing enduro for yeti on the factory team last year (16), had you done much Racing prior to that? What type?

Yeah so my first year with Yeti was in 2016. I had about a year and half of Enduro Racing under my belt prior to this and rewind before that I raced a lot of DH and BMX. Pretty much been racing some form of two wheels since I was 6 years young haha.

3) getting on Yeti is a big deal, some of the hugest names in the sport came from that team, what's it like filling those boots?

Yeti has always been one of the top team's at the highest stage of racing so being able to sign with them is a huge honor of it's own. But with that comes some big shoes to fill. It's something that I have tried not to focus on to much to this point because I feel like I bring a different dynamic to the team and I just want to be myself out there.

codykelleyinterview1sml

4) no doubt you've almost always been on a bike since you were born, what's your first stand out bike? And tell us a tale that includes it?

My first standout bike is for surely an old Maroon Schwinn BMX Race bike my dad had all dialed in for me when I was probably 7... It was the bike that laid the foundation to what's now been years and years of bike riding.

5) life on the road is pretty exciting, lots of things happen and lots of story's start there, can you share a fun one with us?

Probably the most memorable moments on the road is cutting park laps with the boys. Everyone in Enduro hates on bike parks, but when you have a crew cutting laps everyone is smiling ear to ear haha.

6) your current choice of bike is 29er, do you think the wheel debate will ever slow down? I threw out the opportunity for some of the Yetifan regulars on the FB page to ask you some questions, here we go.......

Oh maaaan, ha the good ol wheel debate... People love to get caught up in the simplest things sometimes and to me wheel size is one of the simplest things there is. It all comes down to what you're comfortable on. But I don't know if the wheel dispute is even close to end at this point.

codykelleyinterview2sml7) you've raced slalom/dual, on Polarbears DJ, can you persuade yeti to make us another run? What did you think to the bike?

Don't we all wish that Yeti would start making the DJ again and trust me I've done my share of persuading on the subject, but sadly I don't think it's in the cards. The DJ Frame is honestly one of the best frames out there even to this day. Which is crazy considering how long ago it was designed.

8 ) how do you look after your long hair on the road (fan question!)

Haha the hair questions are always pouring in... I give er a wash and call it good. Not much more to it then your every day haircut.

9) what's your favourite track? Any discipline. Fun or race.

I kind of answered this in one of the earlier questions, but just doing park laps with the boys for fun is probably the highlight of every season.

10) what's your favourite tyre combo? Back to mine

Favorite tire set up is definitely a Maxxis Minion DHF up front and a Maxxis Aggressor out back.

11) as I write this, a bee is buzzing my head, what's the scariest thing you've seen while out on a bike?

Scariest encounter on a bike was at Whistler. I literally brushed a black bear with my foot as I landed off a jump. If he would of been a foot further to the left I would of landed straight on him and crashed surely.

codykelleyinterview3sml12) have you been testing any slick new kit you can/can't tell us about?

Haha to be 100% honest we don't even see our kits until just before each EWS round so I couldn't tell you what they have cooking up for the last 3. I imagine that we have another "America" themed kit in store for Aspen though.

13) what was the last ride you did ? What bike?

We smashed out park laps all day yesterday here in Winter Park and of course I was on my 5.5.

14) ok, thanks for this. Now you get to thank people and plug your social media, .....

Cheers to the Yeti/Fox Factory Team and all of it's supporters for an awesome season and to more in the future. Also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter... @kelleymtb

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Racing News and offical YETI news.

EWS round 7;- July - Whistler - Canada

Round 7 didnt work out too well for the Yeti guys, Some bad luck stopped Richie early on ,and despite a stage win, and a very strong show in other stages, just too far to pull it back. - 12th.

Cody had some sort of problem that stopped him finishing the event, DNF.

Last round is Italy- Val De sole on 30th September 1st October.

So lets just sit back and enjoy the DH finals and World champs until our Turq is back in action! I’m cheering for Gwin Ex Yeti -YT.

JaredJ3wink600notextJared to miss EWS 2 & 3. Here is what he has to say

As EWS rounds 2 and 3 are just around the corner, its time to mention that despite some good (but very frustratingly slow) progress on my shoulders, I wont be racing in Ireland and Scotland later this month. They just arent quite ready to handle flat out descending yet. Rest assured my training and rehab is in full swing and ill be firing on all cylinders when I return for racing Next month for the first 2 Big Mountain Enduro races in Colorado before EWS #4 in France. Thanks for all the support!
