Born and raised in the Poconos, Arley Kemmerer has been an elite athlete for about as long as she could walk. Spending the early years of her life on skis through high school and into college, Arley was a Division I collegiate athlete in downhill ski racing. Kemmerer found cycling after suffering a stress fracture in college and never looked back. Arley has come up through the ranks from local to international World Cup level racing in cyclocross to placing top 20 in international competition. Her skill and devotion is matched only by her determination to achieve all she can while supporting the growth of others in her beloved sport. Racing a full UCI calendar and working full time as an attorney, Kemmerer never slows down, or at least not until the offseason.
A native New Yorker, Rachel Rubino spent her formative years riding a bmx bike around the dirt jumps in her hometown of East Islip, NY and thrashing around her bedroom playing Nirvana songs on guitar. Post college Rachel worked as a courier to support herself while touring internationally in bands. Messenger work and local unsanctioned racing were her gateway into an eventual competitive cycling career where she would go on to racing her first full UCI calendar, National Championships, and travel overseas to race in Belgium.
Arley and Rachel created Level Eleven Racing to provide a platform for their pursuits, with hopes to guide more women into the elite level of this sport with their support and shared knowledge. They are currently the only Pro cyclocross team with an all women’s roster, as well as the only team supported solely by a female mechanic.
