Adam Haughey, MD
“I grew up as a commercial fisherman in Alaska in the summers and on the family ranch in Texas in winters. After college in Georgetown,Texas I moved to Fort Collins and found trails.
Looking for some purpose in life, I enrolled in the Institute of Brewing’s Master Brewers program in Davis, California in 1992 and worked in breweries for the next 10 years. Davis is also where I discovered mountain biking. In 1993 I bought a Univega S7.7 in Davis, California and rode all over the foothills of Davis. After moving back to Texas for my first head brewer job I raced three years as a beginner, then sport (state champion), then expert. I travelled to most races in my 1991 VW Westfalia and am a huge Westy enthusiast. I still have a Westy and enjoy using it as my home base when biking.
I then went to medical school in Houston, residency in Temple, Tx, then took my first job out of residency in Durango at Mercy Regional Medical center. While in Durango, I enjoy desert and high alpine mountain biking then discovered bike packing and eventually endurance racing having participated in the Arizona Trail Race 300 twice with a 12th place finish and a 5thplace finish. I’m planning to tackle the Colorado Trail Race in 2018 if weather and fires permit. I am also looking forward to some slightly “shorter” endurance races.”
Dr. Haughey is a welcome addition to the team, for his enthusiasm, his athleticism, his clinical skills, his adventurous spirit, and his general demeanor. We are thrilled to watch him crush some endurance events in 2019 for Team EMS!
