Nearly two thousand racers braved windy, rainy and cold weather in Tucson this past weekend as they battled for glory (and fun) at the 2011 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo.
Despite the adverse conditions, Pivot Cycles had a great showing on the 17-mile course in the desert.
The Pivot Cycles men's duo team of Brian Bennett and Ernesto Marenchin won their category after a hard fought battle with Trek Bicycle Store. In the end, both teams completed 20 laps, but Pivot Cycles reigned victorious with a 27-minute advantage over Trek Bicycle Store.
Riding atop her Pivot Cycles Mach 4 for Pivot Cycles/Kenda, Timari Pruis grabbed the second place trophy in the solo women's category by completing eleven laps.
Anyone who's ever participated in a 24-hour race understands such events are part competition and part celebration. As such, the Pivot Cycles staff and friends also took part in the race this weekend.
Team Pivot Cycles, stacked with the likes of Brien Gonzales, Sean Kennedy, Kenny Bennett, Micki McKay and Lynette Klien, grabbed sixth place in the 5 Person Co-ed 200+ Combined Age category, with 17 laps completed.
The Pivot Cycles corporate team, appropriately named Team Gnar Shred and the Rad Riders, and starring Grant Kruft, Chris Cocalis, Cindy Cocalis, Allison Baker, Bill Kibler, Daniel Limburg, Joshua "Demo Ninja" Baker and Stanton Kibler enjoyed a fun race with a 14th place finish.
Congrats to the whole Pivot Cycles family for a weekend of great results and lots of fun!
