The Gear Movement / Epic Pro cycling team took home the win at the 13th-Annual 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo Race this past weekend in Arizona, overcoming world-class competition from the Kona Factory Racing team to set a record-breaking 23 laps in the four-man open category.
The team rode their SRAM-equipped Cannondale Flash and Scalpel mountain bikes through each of the flat and smooth 16.1 mile cactus-lined laps. It took the team of Jordan Williford, Sam Morrison, Bryan Alders and Chris Baddick two laps to claim the front position, once in the lead, there was no turning back. The team gained more than an hour on their closest competition.
Bryan Alders joked after the race, "I'm sure the Kona guys wished they were riding a 17 lb Flash!"
