A new Colorado-based professional mountain bike team, Mafia Racing, has gotten its 2008 season off to a good start. The team, which supports both endurance and gravity specialists, has logged top ten results in several regional and national events including the Mountain States Cup Series and the Whiskey Off-Road.
The team recently picked up sponsorship from Felt Bicycles. On their brand new rigs, they earned a third and first in the men's and women's super D at the Mountain States Cup in Angel Fire, New Mexico, a few weeks ago.
"We look forward to taking Mafia Racing to the next level this year," said team President David Janowiec.
