Todd and Tabitha

Todd raced competitively for twelve years in the sport that brought him to the World Championships, U.S. U-23 National Team, and two years at the professional level. Yet, during his career there wasn’t a sports chaplain or ministry pouring into pro cyclists. Todd and Tabitha desired to change the tide by launching AIA Pro Cycling in 2012 after seeing a desperate need for there to be emotional and spiritual support for athletes across the sport. Todd and Tabitha are committed to giving leadership to the ministry while investing deeply in the lives of athletes across the sport with their family. They are parents to two amazing kids Logan and Virginia who love being at bike races, on airplanes, and being with the riders! They call Boulder, Colorado home where you’ll find them chasing their kids on Strider bikes, checking out every area playground, and exploring in the mountains.


Brian Firle

Brian got his start racing bikes during his undergraduate years but once he and his wife, Lisa, moved to Boulder, Colorado in 2009, his passion for the sport only grew stronger. In 2015, Brian left his first career to join Todd, Tabitha, and Brad in the sport ministry of AIA Pro Cycling. Brian currently is attending Dallas Theological Seminary, serving full time with Athletes in Action, and if not "studying” can usually be found on the roads or trails somewhere in the mountains near his home. The spectrum of his work with athletes is broad but Brian likes to focus on spiritual formation and helping athletes discover a deep and practical communion with God. He is also greatly influenced by Lisa's wisdom and experience as a clinical mental health therapist. Brian also continues to compete at a professional level in both road and mountain bike disciplines.

Brad and Adrienne

Being on the bigger side of average, Brad’s cycling career was limited but fun nonetheless. While racing collegiately, his education in Sports Medicine led him to be involved in the forefront of cycling science. Later, combining his love of sport and faith was where he found his niche. For more than twenty years, Brad’s been a Sport Chaplain working with athletes from college to elite to professional on five continents and while living in Europe he helped pioneer Sport Chaplaincy in professional cycling. Now married to Adrienne with children Herschel and Bridgit by his side, they live in the North American hub of cycling (pun intended); Boulder, Colorado.
