Posted by Tyler Anspach on

SDG's Loic Bruni (FRA) took home his first professional victory on the biggest stage possible, winning the 2015 UCI DH MTB World Championships in Andorra this past weekend.  Laurie Greenland continued his domination of the junior ranks by winning the rainbows in his respective category. The track in Andorra is known among racers to be one of the steepest, roughest and most challenging ones on the entire professional circuit. With 2 days of torrential rain and hail it went from difficult, to near impossible when the clay filled dirt turned almost instantly to grease early on in the week. As the...

Greenland wins and Bruni second in Mont Ste Anne.

Posted by Tyler Anspach on

It was another great weekend of World Cup racing for SDG as Laurie Greenland took the win in the junior event and Loic Bruni (FRA) took home second for the Elite men. Troy Brosnan joined Loic on the Podium in 3rd.   The track here at MSA is a beast, and the 25th running of the race here didn’t pull any punches. As usual, the race course features full speed open sections littered with loose sniper rocks hidden in the weeds, as well as incredible slick technical rock gardens that make riders arms scream for mercy. With the typical crazy Quebec...

Our very own Amanda Nauman named new Queen of the Kanza 200!

Posted by Tyler Anspach on

Words fromCX Magazine: http://www.cxmagazine.com/2015-dirty-kanza-200-race-results-video-nauman-hauswald For some, a century of road riding isn’t enough, 100 miles on technical gravel is more their style. Then on the far extreme, you have the folks you participate in the Dirty Kanza 200, who have a penchant for suffering over a half day in the saddle. In the 2014 race, local Kansas Native Brian Jensen and three-time winner Rebecca Rusch were able to tackle the dry course in about 11 and 12 hours, respectively, for the win. This year was a game changer with the weather, however. The rain turned the 200 miles of the course...

SDG off to a roaring start at Crankworx New Zealand

Posted by Tyler Anspach on

SDG athletes got the 2015 MTB season off to a great start this weekend here in Rotorua, New Zealand for this first Crankworx festival south of the Equator. Loic Bruni (Lapierre) took home top honours in the downhill event despite taking a couple of huge crashes in practice in the days before the event.  The young frenchman took on a who's who of downhill and came out on top on a a wild track. Almost identical to the course used for the 2006 World championships, it was a high speed greasy ride down the mountain and though the roots. Dirt...
