Jenn Fields did an great interview of the recently Firecracker 50 winners, Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski and Heather Irmiger, Boulder's husband/wife team. All the content below is from the Daily Camera Story Big Thank you to Jenn and the Daily Camera for the interview!!
This couple has stars and stripes to spare.
Husband and wife pro mountain bikers (and Boulder residents) Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski and Heather Irmiger went back to the Firecracker 50 on the Fourth of July to defend their titles as the national marathon mountain-biking champions. And they both won their events in the 50-mile race out of Breckenridge again -- despite a flat that let some contenders pass Horgan-Kobelski in the first lap.
They're also the current national champions in cross-country mountain-biking. They'll be defending those titles in just over a week in Granby.
Here's what the couple had to say about hanging onto their titles, how they greeted each other at the finish line and what would've happened at home if only one of them had won.
Q: What's the Firecracker course like?
