SuperBike Champion and recent mountain bike convert Ben Bostrom joined the Sho-Air Mountain Bike Racing Team for year-round training and fulfillment of his off-season racing needs.

"For years people tried to get me to ride mountain bikes," said Bostrom, "But I had absolutely zero interest. Then my brother Eric and some friends asked me if I'd race the 24 Hours of Moab with them - I finished that and was hooked."

"Since then I got a better bike, raced 24 hours solo, started racing cyclo-cross, which is like racing road bikes on dirt, and now I've hooked up with this awesome team. I'm stoked!"

"It's great to have another motorcycle Champion join the Sho-Air Racing Team," said Scott Tedro, President of Sho-Air International, a freight shipping company that sponsors the team. "National Mountain Bike Champ and former Motocross star Johnny O'Mara has been with us since the beginning, Stunt Rider Jason Britton is a sponsor of the team, and I've got a little throttle-twisting in my background too. It's great to integrate motorsports stars."

Team Sho-Air also includes cross country Australian National Champion Sid Taberlay, Costa Rican Manuel Prado, several age-group national champions and a slew of amateur racers.
