Cooper Ott

Eduro Mountain Bike Racing

Cooper started racing cross country when she was in college and transitioned into full-time enduro racing three years ago when she and her husband Phil moved to Colorado. Cooper was born in the tip of the mitt of Michigan and moved to the shore of Lake Superior in Marquette, Michigan, for college. After completing her undergraduate degree in Elementary Education, she and Phil loaded up and moved to Crested Butte, Colorado. They have been in the Gunnison Valley for three years now. 2018 was a big year, winning both the Big Mountain Enduro Series and the Scott Enduro Cup Series with an almost perfect season. Outside of racing enduro, she enjoys coaching a local NICA league team and other youth in the valley. And when the snow flies, Cooper hangs up the bike to go skiing!
