Jonathan Maunsell Wins Round 4 of Grass Roots

One half of our Irish Enduro racing family was back in action yesterday at Round 4 of the Grassroots Enduro Series. Jonathan Maunsell has had a stellar year so far with several big victories aboard his Process 153CR. This weekend was no exception, capturing yet another victory at the Grassroots.

He said,  “After taking the win at the first 3 rounds, I was feeling the target on my back this weekend but the DH style stages suited me and I’m happy to make it 4/4! Looking forward to heading out to Europe for the next EWS round!”

Kona Dream Builds: Ben’s “I’m still really a mountain biker” Major Jake

When we spotted Ben’s stealthy Major Jake on Instagram we had to do a little double take. It looked kinda stock, but after closer inspection, some serious attention to detail was revealed in this custom build that clearly indicates a mountain biker not prepared to completely let go of what he loves. The XT Di2 being the main MTB ingredient/giveaway. Red Hope Pro 2 hubs laced to Light Bike rims also echo Ben’s MTB roots, although there are some decidedly non-MTB parts in the mix too. The Zipp Service Course SL bar/stem/seatpost, the lightweight 140mm Ashima lightweight rotors, and the classic Dura-Ace crankset.
