Dante Harmony and Jackie Harmony – Certified Coaches
Team Harmony’s mission is to ride, race and share our love for two wheels with people from all walks of life and all skill levels. Each year we strive to push the boundaries of what is possible on our bikes and in our sport. Jacqueline is closer than ever to her goal of World Champion this year by focusing solely on downhill racing at the the most prestigious races the world over. Dante is close on her heels with a full commitment to improving his race finishes and garnering enough UCI points to compete at the World Cup races and World Champs in Champery. Dante and Jacqueline have both been trained and certified as “Better Ride” Coaches in order to teach basic bike handling skills to riders, which will translate into a better bike riding experience.
Whenever, wherever, from backyard pump tracks, to prestigious World Cups and everything in between, we are always looking towards the next riding experience and meeting new people. We created this website to keep our friends, family and fans in the loop and up to date with our travels and experiences while on the road and on the trail.
Jackie, 2012 U.S. Pro Downhill World Champion –I have been riding mountain bikes since 2000 and started racing cross-country in 2001. After a year of racing cross-country I fell in love with Downhill Mountain biking and started racing in 2002. From 2002 to 2003 I raced expert and pro, when I didn’t need a license to race. In 2004, I upgraded to Pro, but right before the season started I crashed off of a jump and completely tore my ACL, tore my MCL and messed up some meniscus. I was out for the season. In 2005 I got my Pro upgrade and have been racing pro ever since. In 2006, I had my first taste of international racing at the World Championships in New Zealand. Since then I have been fortunate enough to have competed against the best in the world at multiple World Cup events, Mega Avalanche and World Champs again this year. It still feels funny when I tell people I’m the 18th fastest girl in the world. When I am not racing I am off doing something adventurous. A few of those things are skydiving, dirt biking, riding cross-country and hitting up my pump track. This past year I have raced in a Hare Scramble and Grand Prix Dirt bike race and can’t wait to race some more.
Dante Harmony – Born and raised in Tucson, Arizona, I was introduced to two wheeled mayhem by my grandpa, who used to race in the Hare Scramble dirt bike races. I eventually got my first 20” BMX bike and along with my brothers, started to terrorize the neighborhoods and trails. During High School I finally saved up enough cash to afford a dirt bike of my own and that started my addiction to the adrenaline and competitive nature of racing. I love to share my passion for being outdoors and riding bikes and hope to inspire people to give up their day jobs in pursuit of their dreams.
