Organizers of the Dirt Sweat & Gears will give some extra support to Southern Off Road Bicycle Association (SORBA) by giving US$10 on behalf of every SORBA/IMBA member who competes in the May 3, 2008, event in Fayetteville, Tennessee. In addition, the first 25 entrants will receive a free pair of grips from Ergon.
"Dirt, Sweat and Gears is all about sharing good times with like-minded cyclists while supporting a good cause. As SORBA/IMBA members, we support SORBA's efforts and recognize their vital importance in the effort to create trail opportunities for mountain bikers," said Race Marketing Director Grant Castle.
Tom Sauret, SORBA Executive Director, said "This partnership is an example of how race promoters, the bike industry, and advocacy groups all recognize that we are essentially one family working as one to fertilize the bike culture."
