Cannondale's Tinker Juarez will be returning to the 24 Hours of Adrenaline World Championships to defend his 2007 solo title. The 2008 will return to its roots in Canmore on July 26-27.
"After 30-something years of racing, and winning lots of races, lots of national titles and going to the Olympics twice, the only thing missing from my career was a world title," said Juarez. "So I can't even put into words how proud it made me feel to win [in 2007]."
Juarez, who was also recently announced as scheduled to race the new Baja Epic race in November, said the race in Canmore is his "number one goal."
Founder Stuart Dorland reported that Kenda USA had signed up as a major sponsor for the entire 2008 24 Hours of Adrenaline series. Entries are still being accepted for all events except the team categories have filled for the Canmore event.
