LAKE Cycling sponsored free-rider, Jeff Lenosky, demonstrated his skills on June 3 by winning The Freeride Challenge of the TEVA Mountain Games, held in Vail, Colorado. The head-to-head speed trials course included difficult jumps, ramps and other obstacles, which put riders up to eight feet in the air and on top of structures only two feet wide.
“This year's course was faster than ever and the group of riders that showed up to compete was a talented bunch…I was definitely psyched to take the win this year,” said Lenosky shortly after being named Teva Mountain Games Freeride champion.
At the Teva Mountain Games, professional and amateur outdoor adventure athletes from around the world competed in six sports and ten disciplines including: freestyle and extreme kayaking, kayak and raft paddlecross, bouldering, speed and dyno climbing, mountain bike freeriding, cross country racing and the Vail Hill Climb, trail running championships and the GNC adventure sprint race.
Super MTB husband-and-wife team, Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski and Heather Irmiger (both Subaru/Gary Fisher), each won $2,500 for winning their respective cross-country events.
A feature television program about the event will be aired on the Outdoor Life Network and on Fox Sports to an expected audience of over 150 million.
