Team Captain - RN, Bobby "Duracel" Conner
Bobby is an RN with nearly twenty years of healthcare experience. His various roles include combat medic, hospital corpsman, phlebotomist, and now RN. Originally from the Midwest, he discovered mountain bikes at age 30 & decided to uproot his life in search of trails, by way of travel nursing. He worked in every ICU environment in the hospital & rapid response before moving to Durango to work for Flight For Life Colorado in 2014. He now resides in the Emergency Dept. at Mercy. He really enjoys his mountain bikes & his music equipment, when he’s not buried in books for grad school. Bobby works with EMS-Unlimited in a variety of roles, including Team Manager & Clinical Coordinator.
As a child, bicycles were his escape from… well… life. He bailed on his bike at 17 & didn’t realize the gaping hole it left behind. Upon his rediscovery, he vowed never again pass a chance to ride his bike. The bike keeps him young and gives him something to train for. He went from total Gumby to Cat-1 racer in just three years, and hopes to continue rippin’ up trails for many, many years to come. He’s a big fan of enduro and DH, because there’s nothing like full-tilt-boogie over completely mental terrain.
