Tim Abbott

Tim started has career with Gripped by showing up to the Shenandoah 100 with a mountain bike and a dream and that was about it. Fourteen plus hours later, he still had a mountain bike and his dream had become a reality: finishing a 100-mile mountain bike race with zero training and zero mountain bike skills!

A retired Army guy, Tim cherishes his time cycling by riding solo on the mountain bike, which often competes with spending time with his three favorite things: his wife, his daughter and his son.

The longest tenured Gripped member and maybe the oldest one too, Tim loves the camaraderie of the team and the focus of its members.
