Here’s Michael Henley getting ready to take off on the Category 5 Crit at the West Oak Races in Smyrna, GA. This was his first criterium.
Michael is from Columbus, GA and loves cycling and anything to do with the sport. He lives by it and cannot see how he, at one point, never rode. Michael is a fierce competitor. He craves competition and does all that he can so he can practice getting better and win more! Michael currently participates in road races and criteriums, but he would also like to start doing some time trials and cyclocross.
He loves SockGuy “because they are comfortable and unique. They break away from the typical serious cyclist persona and bring a fun element to the sport.”
Here’s Theron Tate wide open on the wall ride on June 10th, 2012 in Colorado Springs, CO.
Theron participates in Down Hill, 4 Cross, dirt jump, and cross country and he loves SockGuy because “SockGuy socks have great compression and stay dry whether I am racing or on a long epic ride.”
Theron is from Fort Collins, Colorado. If you want to follow his races, visit his website.

Here’s Michael Gibson racing in the the mass start at US Biathlon Nationals, where he placed 2nd in the Senior Men category (21-39yrs) on both Friday and Saturday and placed 3rd on Sunday.
Besides racing, Michael is a part time mechanical engineer and designer and lives in Stowe, Vermont.
He loves SockGuy because “They are comfortable and supportive. As a winter athlete, it is important to have warm and dry feet to avoid frostbite, and SockGuy socks help provide that protection for me.”
Next year, Michael hopes to race in Europe on the US IBU Cup team and he’ll wear SockGuys of course! We hope he makes it, too! Fingers Crossed.
You can follow Michael on his new blog.
Here’s Ryan Bacon backflipping a kicker at Schweitzer Mountain Resort in Idaho on February 22nd. Ryan loves to ski more than anything!

He loves SockGuy because “They are comfortable and soft and super affordable, and the designs are awesome! I just love SockGuy!
Here’s Mark Saroni competing at Kemah Triathlon, an Olympic distance triathlon held near Houston, TX.
Mark loves competing in triathlons and cycling races. When he warms up and cools down before and after a race, he wears SockGuy socks.
He loves SockGuy because “because they’re a little quirky and they allow you to express yourself. Training can be somewhat dull at times and I think it’s important to keep things fun and SockGuy definitely allows me to do that. I can’t tell you how many comments I’ve gotten about my popcorn socks! Everyone loves them!”
Two big accomplishments for Mark last year are 1) accepting his pro card in triathlon and 2) getting married to the woman of his dreams!
You can keep up with Mark on his official blog, where he blogs about training and racing.
Keep up the great work Mark!

Here’s Gary Hoehne riding at West Hartford Reservoir in West Hartford, CT. It was a cold day so he doubled up on two pairs of SockGuy socks that day. Good thing he did because in the middle of his ride with his buddies, he ran into a snowstorm that lasted for an hour!
Gary has been riding for 9 years and seriously competing for one season now. He currently participates in XC, Downhill, Cyclocross, and Road. SockGuy socks were the first socks he was introduced to when he started to ride. Over the years, he has tried some other brands, but found they would stretch out and loose shape or develop holes in the heels and toes.
But not SockGuy!
“[SockGuy] have held up against all the different elements the East Coast could throw at them, and more importantly, they hold up to the abuse I dish out during the rides.”
SockGuy has even made cameo appearances at local fire scenes. Gary, a volunteer firefighter in Cheshire, CT, has gone straight from a ride to fighting fires. With no time to change socks, he just slips on his boots over his SockGuy socks.
“[SockGuy] has never let me down…if you’re looking for further proof, I still rock the first set I ever bought, which have orange and yellow flames on them. I’d say they are at least 8 or 9 years old. That’s a true testament of how great they are.”
