ProGold Highlight: Team Kickoff @ Bear Creek
It seems like forever ago now, but only 2 weeks ago, the team got together for the official kick-off to the season. The event was held at one of our favorite venues, Bear Creek Mountain Resort, in Macungie, PA. The day went off without a hitch, and we couldn’t be more proud of the group we have riding for us this season.
The day started with everyone’s favorite time: New Gear Time! Fresh kits provided by Giant via Squadra had everyone looking snazzy for their individual and group photos, and new helmets and gloves provided by Giant Bicycles completed the look.
It wouldn’t be a proper team kick-off without a group ride, so we took a lap around the now infamous Amateur loop to be used for this year’s National Championships. This loop is simply fantastic, breeding a mixture of heartbreak and triumph like none other.
The day wrapped up with the group getting their mental pistons turning thanks to some great talks by the people at Stans/NoTubes and Giant Bicycles. In this case, school was VERY cool! Also, a big shout-out to Brice of FatTireFests.com/Pinkbike/DirtRag for hanging out and all of their support!
We are all very excited for the season which lies ahead, and if this event was to set the tone, then it will be one for the ages. See you on the trail!
