Podium Racing Athletes


Kaysee Armstrong

Following years of competing in cheerleading and gymnastics, Kaysee Armstrong found cycling and never looked back. Winner of the Transylvania Epic and seven collegiate mountain bike and cyclocross championships, Armstrong is a threat in any cycling discipline. She is known for her tenacious attitude and friendly personality. She works to help others progress in cycling, as an instructor for the Bell Joyride Clinics and the Tennessee Bears middle and high school mountain bike team. Look for her ripping around the races with a smile as wide as the course tape!


Stephen Bassett

Stephen started racing cyclocross in Knoxville at nine years old. He brings more than a decade of cyclocross experience, culminating in his participation in the Cyclocross World Championships in Louisville, Kentucky. As he transitioned into the u23 ranks, he put cyclocross on the backburner to focus on racing professionally on the road, earning stage wins at events such as the Tour of Namur and the Cascade Cycling Classic. However, when he saw the opportunity to race cross again with the Podium Sports Medicine p/b Harper Auto team, he jumped at the chance. He looks forward to polishing his bike-handling skills and keeping his competitive energy firing over the winter.
