Marketing & Media Coordinator
Eli Glesmann is from the Adirondack Mountain region of NY State where he attended college with a degree in Ecology and worked at an outdoor education program as mountain bike and XC ski coach. Throughout high school and after college he always dabbled in amateur and professional videography and photo projects, preferably involving biking or skiing. He started at Rock Solid in the Spring of 2018 and traditionally has filled in on projects wherever needed as a hand worker or machine operator. This is still the case now, but mostly spends his time as Rock Solid’s social media/marketing content curator and coordinator which he started in the winter of ’19-’20.
Some noteworthy projects he’s worked on include Boo Boo and Choo Choo hub in Slaughter pen, Lake Leatherwood, Blackbird DH trail, and Little Sugar in Arkansas. He works on other administrative projects like updating the photo library for all projects, updating the Youtube channel videos, building our Instagram portfolio, managing our Facebook, working on our website content, and coordinating various marketing tasks.
As for background in mountain biking, he started biking in ‘05 after watching the movie New World Disorder 5 and reading MTB Action Magazine. His favorite riding style is hybrid trails with flow and natural tech mixed in as well as big jumps/drops and freeride wood features. His favorite trails include NE Style at Highland Mountain and Trillium at Thunder Mountain Bike Park. Rock Solid favorites are DH-7 at Leatherwood, Lizard trail at Mt. Nebo and the new Kessler DH trails. Trails that have long top to bottom runs are what he loves but doesn’t mind spending all day in the saddle either!
