First Weekend out for the Factory XC Boys

It seems like only yesterday that Barry and Wendy where finishing off the CX season over in Japan at CX Tokyo. But in this modern era, these is no time for lollygagging!

The 2014 Mountain Bike series kicked off this past weekend in Dripping Springs Teaxas, with the Mellow Johnnys classic Pro XCT. Spencer Paxson and Kris Sneddon made the trip down to warm, sunny Texas, and rode well to open their accounts for the Season. Spencer finished 8th, with Sneddon close behind in 12th.

Barry Wicks decided to stay a little closer to home, and headed out to Echo, Oregon for the Red to Red season opener for the OBRA MTB series. Wicks took home the win in wintry conditions, reminiscent of the closing cross season.

Now the team will buckle down for the early part of the season, traveling to Southern California for the Bonelli and Fontana rounds of the Pro XCT before hitting up the Sea Otter Classic and the Whiskey 50. Follow along as they bring their sick new rides to races near you!
