Jeremy Durrin has made his way from a self supported college student/racer at UMass to elite racer in both road and CX in just a few short years. Coming out of college with a degree in finance he chased his dream of racing in the professional ranks. The support from sponsors and the JAM Fund reduced the financial impact of traveling to races and equipment costs. With the financial burden lessened Durrin was able to increase his dedication to training and racing. With each season getting better results he has been motivated to eke out every advantage his body could give. Seeking support from a nutritionalist to cut excess weight and a coach to train smarter.
Durrin's combination of hard work and passion has come together as he pieces together his best CX season yet. All while still working full-time and helping with the JAM Fund program. The fruits of his labor manifested into his first UCI win at Bay State on Saturday and a 3rd place on Sunday just behind Jeremy Powers and Shawn Milne. He will race Warwick this weekend and then head to Belgium to race overseas. Durrin has hinted at big news for next year, but cannot confirm anything yet. No doubt that this soon-to-be inaugural JAM Fund graduate has an exciting future in the cyclocross scene.
