The 2013 mountain bike race season is in the books, and Team Campmor has completed yet another year of great racing. The 16 member team competed in the Campmor H2H Series taking 8 top 5 positions. Congratulations to Dar Phillips for winning Pro/open women, Ellen White for winning Cat 1 40+, and Stef McKeon for winning Cat 3. Also congratulations to Willy for taking 2nd in the very competitive Cat 1 50+.
Outside of the local series, Team Campmor sent 6 racers to Mountain Bike National Championships in McCungie Pa. The team claimed four podium spots and one National Championship Title. Nationals will return to Pa again next year and Team Campmor will once again be racing for titles.
Team Campmor is more than just a team that races. They are involved in the future of the sport as well. They do several types of community service. Each team member is required to perform a minimum of 5 hours of trail maintenance each year and is encouraged to participate in organizing clinics and events. In 2013 the team completed 348 hours of trail work on local public lands. They also hosted several clinics both in the store and in the field. Jeremy Swift even convinced his landlord to allow him to build 5 miles of trails and promote a race in his back yard.
The team has received much support throughout the year from it’s outstanding sponsors. Whether sponsors connect the team with great bikes, great products or offer technical support, it always improves the level of racing and riding enjoyment. Team Campmor would like to send a big thanks out to these sponsors: Campmor, Notubes and Bell/Giro/Easton. Your support is much appreciated!
