2015 season summary.
I achieved my primary goals of gaining UCI points and finishing on the podium in major regional races. I missed the ultimate goal of getting 20 UCI points (enough to start a World Cup), coming up just short at 17 points, which was still a huge step up considering I came into the saeson having never scored a point. My racing in Colorado gained a huge amount of media attention, with mentions and photos in many regional newspapers including: TheDaily Camera, Grand Junction Free Press, Grand Junction Sentinal, Steamboat News, Steamboat Today,Summit Daily News, Durango Herald. In the cycling media, my racing in the Epic Rides series (Whiskey 50, Grand Junction Offroad) gained a lot of coverage. My podium at the Grand Junction Offroad lead to coverage such as “Returning champion Fernando Riveros Paez was amongst a world-class field of pros including the likes of Jeremiah Bishop, Todd Wells, Ben Sonntag, Alex Grant, and Chris Baddick.” and also lead to photos in print media such as Mountain Bike Action. My name, the Boulder Cycle Sport name and the YogaGlo name were mentioned on the following national cycling websites: Dirt Wire TV, MTB Race News, Cycling News, VeloNews, Mountain Flyer, PinkBike, Canadian Cyclist, Cycling Illustrated

24 hours in the Old Pueblo 2012
“While it took most people an hour and a half or to ride one lap of the course, a few riders completed a lap in less than an hour: Chris Baddick, Jason Tullous, Michael McCalla and Cameron Chambers.
At 56 minutes and 1 second, Baddick cycled the fastest lap of the event. Rebecca Rusch recorded the fastest female lap at 1:04:11.”
“The Gear Movement / Epic Pro cycling team took home the win at the 13th-Annual 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo Race this past weekend in Arizona, overcoming world-class competition from the Kona Factory Racing team to set a record-breaking 23 laps in the four-man open category.”
“Alders took the first lap of the 16.1-mile cactus lined course, putting the team in contention behind Kona, before Baddick moved the team into a commanding position at the front of the race.”
“Turning in the highest lap total of the day was the Epic Endurance/The Gear Movement squad. They pulled off a huge upset, outpacing a Kona team that included some of the fastest cross country racers in the country. The Epic Endurance crew cranked out an impressive 23 laps.”
Evergreen Ice bike race
“The new team we have has a lot of talent. The team will be anchored by former Cannondale/Monavie racer Bryan Alders and include Chris Baddick and Sam Morrison from the 2011 Epic Endurance Cycling Team.
