Want a New BIke?

How bad? Willing to ride 5 hours, 10? Even more? CLimb 5000 ft, 10,000? 15,000?

Eddie O and Rae Gandolf were chosen to ride with 2 mountain bike pros from Santa Cruz Bicycles. If they could keep up, they got to keep the new (well, now slightly used) bikes.

Rae had to ride with downhill legend, now xc racer and recently crowned single speed world champ Marla Streb. You can read her report here.

Eddie had to ride with Santa Cruz pro Mark Wier. From what I hear Mark is as masochistic as he is sadistic. One of his goals this year is to climb 1 million vertical feet on his MTB. Eddie O is an accomplished (heck almost veteran) 12/24 hour racer, but he'd have his hands more than full here. He has a great report on his new site.

Great reading, great pictures, great riding. They don't call it HELL RIDE for nuthin'.

Another day of recovery for me, a short easy single speed spin through the park.
