A five-year member of the U.S. Long Track National Racing Program, Blumel was the 2007 U.S. Single Distance Champion and is in his fourth season representing Team USA on the World Cup circuit.
Speedskating is a family affair for Blumel, his aunt Katie Class Marquard is a two-time Olympian (1984 and 1988), and his brother Mac also competes on the long track circuit.
Off the ice, and off-season, Blumel enjoys playing golf. He is studying exercise science at the University of Utah.
