Team 283 consisting of Bill Fehr and Rebecca Tomaszewski from North Carolina won the Trans Germany UXC competition sponsored by Race Face, and will be heading to Germany to compete for glory from June 9 to 16. The Trans Germany runs 800km and climbs 18,000m from Pfälzerwald to Erzgebirge.
The duo, two bike messengers from North Carolina who want to be the first co-ed, fully rigid, singlespeed team, will be flown to the races with all entry fees paid by Race Face. They will be outfitted with Race Face components and clothing and be given RaceFace team tech support throughout the multi-day epic race.
Race Face is now accepting votes for the team to earn a similar award for the Trans Alp portion of the UXC. You can watch the videos, read team profiles and vote for your favourite all at www.raceface.com/uxc. The Trans Alp winners will be announced Friday, June 1.
