Back to our normal programing…..Our Weekend update resumes and finds us encountering a Colorado spring…..warmer temperatures, rising rivers, dry dirt roads and trips west to find open single track. A cast of characters makes up the whole here at Moots….these are just some of them:
A little off the back for the Moots Weekend Update this week….but none the less, we have it for you here:
Monday……that day we go back to “work”, recovery day if you have played/trained hard, a day when you bump into your work mates,
Sometimes bikes are not all that consume our lives here at Moots. I know that is hard to believe, but it’s true.
We are hitting the road in early February for a mid-west Moots Dealer Tour. We have several social evenings planned, a return to the CABDA show in Chicago and special Moots take-over event at Angry Catfish in Minneapolis.
Over the past few years we have built our “Moots Ti Sticks” each Cyclocross season so you can cheer on your favorite racer. These “Ti Sticks” are made from our US made seamless titanium that is too short to be used in our frames or components.
Why would I want disc brakes on my cross bike? … I suppose you could say that I waited until all the right pieces of the puzzle were lined up to make the jump, but really it’s more dumb luck on my part. The SRAM 1x system I’ve been riding on my canti bike for the last year and a half has been great, so I knew I loved that. It was the coming together of several companies with just the right items.
This past weekend the Colorado Cyclocross season had a bigger race weekend than normal at the scene of the 2014 Cyclocross Nationals–Valmont Bike Park. With UCI points on the line for the pros and junior categories, the production level of these races was much higher. But pro point’s aside, we were there to get two good days of racing under our chamois in the amateur classes. The course for Saturday was the exact same layout from Nationals.
Charlie Cunningham sustained multiple injuries in a fall in August 2015, broken bones, bruises and head trauma. He is hospitalized and is making strides to recover from brain surgery. Learning how to talk and swallow are just a couple of the hurdles he is facing. He needs our help to pay for the mounting medical bills and modifications that will be needed to his home in Marin, CA.
Moots will be on hand at our stand out dealer, STUDIO VELO — in Marin county California, to support the Jensie Grandfondo of Marin.
Our sprinter will be loaded with road demos for customers to ride the entire day during the fondo. All proceeds from the event go to the Marin County Bicycle Coalition.
Moots will be on hand for the U.S. Marathon Mountain Bike Nationals in Arkadelphia, Arkansas on May 7th. This national championship will attract the nation’s best pro and age group endurance mountain bikers to the Iron Mountain Trail System at DeGray Lake in Arkadelphia, AR.
Moots has signed on as a TITANIUM level sponsor for the 2017 Jensie Gran Fondo of Marin. We will be on site during the event, riding the event and offering VIP riders demo bikes for the weekend. Join us during this classic ride in early October.
