Today we have a friend of Moots write about his experience during his 3rd 3 PEAKS “CYCLOCROSS” RACE—
Wes Ulrich resides in Germany and has been a long time friend of our sales director Corey Piscopo.
Wes also made a special trip to Eurobike to come and ride one evening with us, he’s a great guy
and super committed cyclist. He took his new ROUTT to the test this year at 3 PEAKS
and wrote this insightful piece about his adventure.
