Just like last year, component manufacturer Race Face is looking to the general public to help pick it's sponsored race team members for the 2006 Trans Rockies Challenge.
Readers vote online for which two teams who they would like to see represent Race Face in one of the most grueling marathon mountain bike races in the world – with all expenses paid.
Round one of the competition is now closed. The second round begins Saturday July 8. The new nominees are:
Whistler, BC, based Lesley Clements and Nikki Klassen, Rich Dillen and Josh Neely of North Carolina, Mexico's Guillermo Cuello and Rodrigo Elvira and Carey Lowery and John “Zeke” Lilly, of Athens, Tennessee and Blue Ridge, Georgia.
Online community members will have one week to submit their votes at www.raceface.com. The winning team will be the second of two teams who will represent Race Face at the 2006 TransRockies.
