412.jpgThe latest – including team sign up information was sent out via email today (Dec 6).  Check it out here in case you missed it.  There is some SOLID info in there.  What is not mentioned is that we have a long list of cool sponsors that is growing.  Once those are all firmed up, we will give you the full run down so you can thank your local bike shop.  The holidays are coming, which means time off work (hopefully) and some exceptional riding in AZ.  Take advantage, check out AZ Cross (state finals on Dec 20/21 as well as Dawn til Dusk on Dec 14.  It’s chilly, but the trails are rad.  Hit it.
