What we believe

Life is about experiences, not things.

Riding bikes makes things better: our mood, our health, our world.

Also, Colorado rocks!

We believe in cycling. We believe in the momentum of the group – physically and psychologically. At Roll Massif, we focus on four things:

Courses — From the Colorado National Monument to Alpine passes to private ranches, we roll our favorite places.

Camaraderie — Bonding happens on the bike. We don’t have categories; you ride with whomever you like. 

Challenge — It’s not going to be easy. It’s going to be worth it.

Community — Decades of Colorado experience extends beyond the ride. Local wine, fruit, food & music? We got you. Online, Colorado Cycling stories and Bike & Gear Reviews keep you plugged into our great scene.

 

Meet Our Team

Chandler Smith

Co-Founder and Co-Owner

Chandler has run large-scale cycling events for 15 years, including Haute Route Rockies (2016-17), Ride The Rockies (2007-16) and Pedal The Plains (2012–16) and Bike MS (2004–07). A Colorado native, Chandler is an avid outdoorsmen and music junky. When not on a bike (road, mountain and gravel), he can often be found on Colorado’s streams and slopes or catching a music show.

Scotty olmsted

Co-Founder and Co-Owner

Like Chandler, Scotty has 15 years experience running professional events, beginning with ski races in Vail back in 2005 before moving to cycling with Rocky Mountain Events (2006-17). Have you done Copper Triangle or Tour of the Moon? Scotty helped create those. For this Coloradan, there is nothing more rewarding than helping riders create lifelong memories on the bike.

Tracy Powers

Customer Service, Merchandise and Registration Manager

Tracy wasn’t born in Colorado, but she got here as fast as she could – at age 4. Tracy has been working Tour de Vineyards for 13 years, and many of the others for 8. At our sportives, you can always find Tracy’s smiling face at registration and merchandise. Away from work, you can find her on the golf course or hiking with her dog.

Liz Brown

Logistics and Operations Manager

Liz lives the life of a native Coloradan, enjoying road biking, mountain biking, snowboarding, hiking, kayaking, camping and, most recently, rock climbing. Her pro event experience is similarly diverse, including the Colorado Rockies, the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, Ride The Rockies, the Colorado Classic & Velorama and more!

Nick Ramey

Head of Sales

A Colorado native, Nick has been in the cycling and outdoor industries for decades. The former Group Ad Director at VeloNews and former National Sales Manager for Yeti Cycles and La Sportiva, Nick is all about the trails: on his mountain bike, in running shoes and, recently, on skimo skis. We can’t keep up with him on any of those things.

Ben Delaney

Head of Communication

Ben has been a cycling journalist since 1999, when racing bikes and studying journalism at the University of New Mexico led to pulls at VeloNews, BikeRadar, Cyclingnews and elsewhere. After traveling the world to report on pro cycling in Europe and manufacturing in Asia, Ben is happy to be at home in Colorado, riding and writing.
