Marin partners with Mad March Downhill and Freeride Camps

Marin Bikes, manufacturer of performance bicycles, recently announced its signing and support of Mad March Racing Camps. As partners and principals of Mad March Racing, Shaums March and Mike Jones will exclusively conduct Downhill and Free Ride camps and compete on Marin bikes this upcoming season. Mad March Racing has teamed up with Marin to promote mountain biking in a new way throughout North America, sharing their passion, knowledge and skills with riders of all levels.

With a renewed commitment to develop performance full suspension systems, the partnership with Mad March Racing will creatively promote the QUAD XLT line to resorts, Bicycle dealers and most importantly, riders interested in improving their skills. March and Jones will be riding Quake models, a suspension system that operates on Marin's QUAD-LINK design. Developed in conjunction with Fox DHX rear shocks, the suspension can be set up firmly for big hits and jumping, or supple for maximum traction, making it the ideal Free Ride bike.

“Marin's energy behind our camps will enable us to reach more people who are interested in becoming better riders," said Jones. "We hope to promote Marin with the same kind of enthusiasm and commitment they have shown to us.” Jones has raced and ridden mountain bikes for over 15 years throughout North America. In this time, he has been a fixture in the Canadian riding scene and has represented Canada five times on the National Team as well as being the National Downhill Champion three times and BC Champion numerous times. He has also been the host of the internationally aired Ride Guide TV show for the past three years and looks forward to riding, teaching and competing on a Marin this upcoming season.

March and Jones will be present for the debut the new QUAD XLT, Marin's innovative Free Ride platform, at the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey.
