What we couldn’t tell you was that the Marketing Executive role she was taking with Neon Velo meant that she and her husband Jeremy Durrin would be heading to Europe in 2016. Gabby will pursue her new career there and Jeremy will step away some from racing in the US and focus on road and cyclocross in the UK and Europe.
