The infamous Tom Carter is our DJ this week on 10 Tracks. Originally from Columbus, OH, Carter has been active in the Northern Colorado cycling scene for some 30 years. He’s been a grassroots race promotor, perpetual volunteer, and racer. There are grainy photos on Facebook that prove he did indeed ride BMX, MTB’s, ‘cross, and even bikepacked back in the day. There are more recent photos of him mountain biking and gravel riding. Rumors suggest he’s making a return to racing in 2021.

The father of two attended and perhaps graduated from UNC, he rides for the First City Cycling Team and works for Excel Energy.
