Greer Van Dyck – Community Relations Director

About Greer: Greer was born in Georgia but was built for the mountains and at the age of 20, she hit the road from Athens, Georgia and made her way to Boulder, CO. At the beginning of 2020, she started her own business providing leadership development trainings and coaching for organizations. Community engagement and riding bikes are also two of her greatest passions, and loves how her work with SBT GRVL combines the two so naturally. She loves to trail run, mountain bike, and gravel ride in the warmer months, and backcountry ski through the Winter. She lives in Steamboat Springs, CO with her husband and two pups!
Favorite Post Ride Food/Drink: A burrito & a strawberry basil margarita.
Bucket List Ride/Adventure: Running the Tour Du Mont Blanc.

Susie Bockard – Director of Finance & Administration

About Susie: Susie Bockard is our Director of Finance & Administration and you have most likely had contact with her, without knowing it.  When not working hard on the SBT experience, Susie can be found on her own bike, being no stranger to suffering as a multi-Ironman finisher and participant in several gravel events.  She lives in Denver with her husband Cliff and two teenage boys.  Be sure to wave to her on the roads of Steamboat, a second home for 35 years!

Favorite Post Ride Food/Drink: Usually a coffee – unless it’s one of those long, epic, hot days – then it’s a beer and tacos with whomever I had the pleasure of suffering with that day.
Bucket List Ride/Adventure: Anything long and really pretty!

Eli Campbell – Course Director

About Eli: Eli came to Steamboat almost 20 years ago, first as a competitor and then as a coach for the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club’s freestyle mogul skiing program.   When he realized that wasn’t going to pay the bills, he took a job with the local radio stations, where he created successful events like the Kickball Klassic and the Steamboat Mad Mud Run.  In 2015, Eli followed his passion for creating memorable experiences by launching Sentio Cycling, a company that helps in the design, production and logistics for cycling events around the nation.  In addition to SBT GRVL, Sentio Cycling is part of the operational team for the Emerald Mountain Epic in Steamboat, the Bourbon Country Burn in Kentucky, the Arthritis Foundation’s California Coast Classic, and more.  Even though Eli has directed his attention to cycling events, when you’re in town for SBT GRVL, tune in to 104.1/105.5 KFMU, where you can still hear him as the weekday morning DJ from 6a-Noon. 

Favorite Post Ride Food/Drink: A hot pizza and a cold beer from Mountain Tap Brewery
Bucket List Ride/Adventure: I’ve got two: Mountain bike the San Juan Hut trail system from southern Colorado to Moab, and pedal from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic. I supported a team in the Race Across America, but I want to get out and do the journey myself (maybe at a slower pace… and with sleep)

Kristy Fox – Community Relations

About Kristy: Kristy has lived in Steamboat for over 30 years and has no plans to leave anytime soon. Her husband and she have recently sold their fast paced restaurant and are filling their time doing all the activities this little mountain town offers. Her happy place is any adventure with their 3 girls and my 4 legged side kick.

Favorite Post Ride Food/Drink: Chips and guac and a margarita, with salt of course, to replace those electrolytes!
Bucket List Ride/Adventure: Hiking the Tour du Mont Blanc through France, Italy and Switzerland.

Megan Harvey – Head of Merchandising

About Megan: She moved to Steamboat in 1997, straight from University of Alabama. She somehow finds a way to love it more and more each year. She has a husband, two daughters, and two dogs and that makes living in Steamboat that much more enjoyable.

Favorite Post Ride Food/Drink: She absolutely loves heading straight to Taco Cabo  in Steamboat post ride. The food is great and it’s very conveniently located.
Bucket List Ride/Adventure: She had a trip to Tuscany planned in April 2020. It was a gravel camp with a race at the end of the week. That was and still is her bucket list ride. She knows it will happen!! Hopefully in September!
