Robin Rasmussen was born in the Northwest and raised in the Portland, Oregon area. He attended Southern Oregon University where he obtained his degree in Biology.
Robin fell in love with outdoor sports in Oregon, but found the weather more accommodating in Durango, Colorado. He moved to Durango in 2000 after realizing he was a a great point in his life to do something different. Not too long after moving to Durango he met his now wife and business partner Alicia C. Romero (who hired him when he first moved to Durango at The Durango Herald newspaper).
Although Robin is no longer a serious competitive cyclist he still enjoys getting outdoors: Cycling, running, hiking with the dogs (two Newfoundlands)…and spending as much time as possible with Alicia and their son Rei (pronounced like “rye”).
