Kurt Refsnider (Ultra Endurance Cyclist) is an avid adventurer, cyclist, and geologist. His life has always revolved largely around cycling, the outdoors, and science, and most of the time, a touch of competition in one form or another. The cycling bug latched on by age 13, and a decade and a half later, he’s tried his hand at road, mountain, track, cyclocross, and Nordic ski racing before discovering the beauty and simplicity of bikepacking and ultraendurance mountain bike events. He currently holds course records for the Arizona Trail 300, the 750-mile Arizona Trail Race, and he won the 2011 Tour Divide.
After finishing a PhD program in geology at the University of Colorado, Boulder in 2011, he moved to Prescott, Arizona where he now teaches Earth Science courses at Prescott College and serves on the board of the Prescott Mountain Bike Alliance. Kurt’s research on glaciers and ice sheets has taken him to destinations throughout the Rocky Mountains and to the High Arctic world of hungry polar bears and melting ice caps.

Fraissard released the 3rd album Tabula Rasa in 2008.
