Gary Fisher rolls out 29er crew

Gary Fisher Bikes' team of exclusive 29er riders announced a 43-rider strong grassroots team for 2008. Ranging in age from 17 to 50, its riders hail from the wooded Northeast of Vermont, the Southwestern deserts of California, the shores of the United Kingdom, and everywhere in between. They'll be racing cross country, endurance and XTerra on bikes ranging from singlespeed to full suspension 29ers.

The 40-plus person team includes notable individuals such as recent 24 hour US National Champion Cameron Chambers; current National Cyclo-cross Singlespeed Champion Marko LaLonde; current Chequamegon 40 Champ Jesse LaLonde (yes, they're brothers); longtime Fisher regional racer and brain tumor survivor Michael Patrick; Subaru-Gary Fisher team mechanic Matt Opperman; 2007 US National Championship top-ten finisher Sam Koerber; and, of course, Gary Fisher himself.
