Maui Mountain Bike Relay Kids Race for Big Brother and Sisters Maui

James Boote

maui-mountain-bike-relay-kids-2013.jpg

Last weekend the 2013 Maui Mountain Bike Relay Races were held to benefit Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Maui. The event gave mountain bike riders an opportunity to ride trails in upcountry Maui and enjoy a day of cycling camaraderie with fellow mountain bikers, feast on great food and support one of the best charity organizations on Maui, the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Maui. Of course, West Maui Cycles was onsite offering bike repairs, support and bike maintenance for those in need of bike repairs or adjustments. We used our Specialized pop up alongside the bike store popup to provide a mini bike repair shop for the mountain bike event. Everyone had a great time and the kids loved the pump track and relay track. What a great day for families to get out and ride.

The event registration opened at 7. Afterwards, the event got underway with the Maui Pace Relay races for beginners and intermediate riders taking place at 8 am. The goal for riders was to complete as many trips around the 1.5 mile mountain bike relay course as possible between 8 and 9:30 am.  The next event was the Keiki Races for kids under 13 and was non-competitive fun race to get the little ones riding and enjoying cycling. And finally, the day of bike racing finished with a competitive Fast Relay Pace for the expert and elite mountain bike riders. This race was a gender neutral event open to all experienced mountain bike riders of any age. Teams were comprised of individuals and two rider relay teams who made as many trips around the challenging 4 mile mountain bike relay course as possible in the 3 hours allotted for the relay. Nearly all the riders noted the difficulty of the mtb course even for the expert level riders!

Check out a short video of the kids mountain biking at the Relay Races last weekend in Makawao. With all the great mountain bike riding on Maui, is it any wonder even the youngest keiki love to get out on the mountain bike trails available around Maui! Check out a short video with the kids mountain biking at the Relay Races:

Specialized Athletes Compete in XTerra Maui Post Tsunami

James Boote

maui-xterra-bike-rentals--specialized-1210281285.jpg

Does traveling the world as a professional cycle rider backed by a world class bike manufacturer sound like a glamorous life full of adventure? After working with the athletes competing in the XTerra World Championship at Kapalua and the TriLanai, I can attest to the effort these world class athletes expend for their sport! Have you ever considered what these world class XTerra triathletes go through on race day or training to get ready for races?

The Race Must Go on! Even a Tsunami can't stop XTerra Maui.

Though few would argue it is not an exciting life worth pursuing, pro cycling is not all fun and games all the time. In some cases, including the most recent XTerra Maui races when a tsunami threatened the XTerra World Championship race itself, some of the competing athletes were forced to compete with minimal sleep after a restless night complete with tsunami evacuation sirens. Watch the 2012 XTerra race day unfold in the following video with the Specialized bike race team:

Thanks to Specialized Bikes and the I Am Specialized bike team for the XTerra Maui video above.

Early Birds Going After the Same Worm Mountain Bike Video

My head is still brimming with all the info about the new bikes and bike gear after returning from the Specialized bicycle dealers preview event in Utah last week. Specialized is certainly not resting on laurels when it comes to mountain biking innovation on their StumpJumper mountain bikes! While the Specialized StumpJumper has already enjoyed 30 years as a leading mountain bike, Specialized continues buildling upon the rich history with the latest mountain bike technology. Our performance mountain bike rentals include the full suspension Specialized Stumpjumper FSR and the Specialized StumpJumper Comp 29'er Hardtail. For 2013, Specialized kept to their StumpJumper mountain bike traditions by introducing new bikes and including innovative enhancements to the existing models!

maui-xterra-world-championship-at-kapalua-conan-contrad-stoltz.jpg

Specialized made almost every model of their StumpJumper mountain bike available for the dealers to get acquainted with and experience demo rides during heir annual bike dealer event at Snowbird. There were plenty of Specialized StumpJumper Expert Carbon mountain bikes on hand, some equipped with 26 in wheels. Thats right, one of the options some riders will need to decide is whether to buy their bike equipped with 29 inch wheels or use the 26 inch wheels. That could be a tough choice to make! Either way, if you are thinking about buying a mountain bike, you couldn’t make a better decision than buying a Specialized mountain bike!

To help you decide on your wheel size and get aquainted with the StumpJumper FSR, check out the Specialized bike video where team riders Brad ‘The Hair’ Benedict climbs aboard a 2013 Specialized StumpJumper FSR Expert Carbon EVO 29 and Curtis ‘The American Dream’ Keene takes a mountain bike ride aboard the 2013 Specialized StumpJumper FSR Expert Carbon EVO 26. As you’ll see in this fun short 3 min 30 sec video, both riders are early birds out to catch the same worm:

Thanks to VitalMTBVideos for creating the awesome mountain bike video!
