Our names are Kevin and Conor Mullervy and we currently live and train in Boulder, Colorado. We are identical twin brothers chasing the dream of becoming professional cyclists again.
Chasing our dream back
Once we graduated college, our dream was to become professional cyclists. Shortly after our graduation day, we signed a contract with Team Exergy professional cycling team. We were living our dream, riding our bikes everyday and getting paid for it. We are only 24, and feel extremely blessed to have done what we loved everyday. We had signed contracts for the 2013 year with the same team, and were really excited for another year of living our dream. We recently just found out the big sponsor, Exergy, has pulled its support from the team, and we no longer have a job. Since we received the news so late in the year, we were given no chance to find another team for the 2013 year. Teams have had their rosters finalized for some time now. We do not want to give up our dreams, after tasting some small success. If anything we are more driven to keep our dreams a reality.
For the 2013 season we are without a professional contract, but want to have a successful year to get back on a team later in the year or for the 2014 season. So with your generosity we will be able to keep training, and chasing our dreams to become professional cyclists once again.
Who we are
We have been riding and racing bikes for close to six years now. We fell in love with the sport later than the normal competitive cyclist. It wasn’t until our senior year in high school that we discovered racing. After we graduated high school, we were in search for a college with a good cycling program and a good place to ride bikes with different types of terrain. We found Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction CO, a short drive from the famous Moab, UT. We raced all different disciplines the first two years with mountain biking, cyclocross and road racing. Before we graduated with our degrees in Sports Management, we won two collegiate national championships in the Team Time Trial. Once we graduated, our dream was to become professional cyclists. Shortly after our graduation day, we signed a contract with Team Exergy professional cycling team.
What we need
We are trying to raise $15,000 to get us through this hard time in our career to continue chasing the dream. We will use the money to help pay for travel, equipment, entry fees and the cost of living through out the next year.

We would not be where we are today without our support crew. Our family and friends are very supportive in what we are doing and stand behind us all the way. During this low spot in lives they have helped us stay positive and moving forward.
