Our friend Reba Rusch takes her 3rd 24 hour World!

We understand who pays her bills, so we don't want you to think we just did the fit on her. We use to work with her and are pleased with 2 Worlds titles.

We see this often, as so many of our users do very well, move up and get paid by large outfits. We love it when they can make a living in the sport.

We just want to say!

Way to go Reba! Congrats on your 3rd World 24 hour success!

Monavie Cannondale "Bishop" Top Gun Out!

Monavie Cannondale mtb pro Jeremiah Bishop had the GC lead in Kamloops, BC, but had a hard crash and cracked two vertebrae in his back. Then the results for stage 3 where nullified?

We also had Sue Butler Monavie Cannondale in GC lead. The 3rd Stage had to be change due to a local resident being a real pain. Organizers lost control and had about 100 racers all over the place at the new event.

We hope Bishop gets well soon? This might take him out of worlds? Not good!
We will have a report on Sue soon.

USA Masters Road Championships Results!

Better late than never. Seems that the guys & gals from Pocatello, ID and Asheville, NC don't blow their own horn?

Sam Krieg (Pocatello, Idaho/Ice Rocky Mtn. Surge Wobble-naught & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish) brought home the silver in the 30-34 men’s division, only to be outdone by his better half, Karen Appleby-Krieg (Pocatello, Idaho/Ice-Rocky Mtn.) who won the Stars-and-Stripes in the women’s 30-34 group.
USA Cycling Masters Road National Championships was held in Louisville, Kentucky June 28-July 4, 2009. The month of July has been very busy for us and we failed to list the super results these folks have earned from Pocatello, Idaho. Our dealer Andy Applegate took yet another Stars-and-Stripes with his wife.

US Team picked for UCI Marathon Worlds in Austria!

Two men and two women are headed to Austria for World Ultra Endurance.

Ultra distance racing means you have to have a fit that allows you to go hard and long.

Four riders - two men and two women - will represent the US National Team at the UCI Marathon World Championships in Stattegg, Austria, on August 23 and two of them are using Wobble-naught & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish.

Jeremiah Bishop (MonaVie/Cannondale WN & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish) and Harlan Price (Independent Fabrication) qualified automatically for the men's team - as did Pua Sawicki (Ellsworth WN & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish) and Heather Holmes for the women's team.

Bishop earned his spot after finishing second at the US marathon championships earlier this month, and Price earned his nod as the current number-one ranked man in the USA Cycling National Ultra Endurance Calendar rankings.

In the women's contest, Sawicki secured her automatic nomination with a second place finish at the US marathon nationals. Holmes earned a berth by riding to fifth place at US marathon nationals.

Given the times! What is very sad here is the four riders will have to pay their own way to the worlds?  

What can you say about Luna? Power House!

It's only fitting that Pendrel wins at home in Canada

July 26, Elite women cross country:


MTB World Cup Cross Country #5 - 2009, Mont-Saint-Anne, Quebec, Canada 

Just one week ago, Georgia Gould takes the USA Short Track and Canadian National Champion Catharine Pendrel just claimed her second World Cup victory.  Other teammate Nash battled for second place, ending up 3rd.  Georgia Gould takes 7th against the world!  
Now that's a power house!  Anyone of these gals can win anywhere in the world.
The U23's i.e. Emily Batty (Can) and Chole Forsman (USA) are up and coming!
