Racer Profile: Eric Buckley

Eric Buckley spent his younger days in the gray area between amateur and professional cycling. He competed at National Championships, Olympic Trials, and Veteran's World Championships. He entered over 800 cycling races, winning 84 of them.

He took up orienteering in 1997. There he met local legend Rich Ruid, a veteran of the Eco Challenge and Southern Traverse, who introduced him to adventure racing. After dabbling in it for several years, he's become a true believer and now views his other sports as mere preparation for adventure races.
