Ergon sponsored adventure racing team, Dart-NUUN, checks in after a solid month of racing around the World…

“November has been the best month in the team’s 7 year history. First off, the team took 6th at the World Championships in the 120F temperatures of Northeastern Brazil and a week later won the US National Championships in significantly colder Georgia. Both races had beautiful and extremely tough courses (as most championships do) against the best in the world and the nation. We’re extremely proud of our accomplishments but know we couldn’t have achieved such amazing results without the continued support over the years of our amazing sponsors. Thank you!”

Topeak-Ergon waiting for the sun to set

We have decided to go public with these!  There is an Ergon night ride tonight, in Koblenz, at the Stadtwald.  Meeting at Koblenz Railway Station at 6pm, it is a chance to ride with some members of the Ergon R&D Team, some of the Ergon management and perhaps see things before anyone else!

I am aware that it is quite a long way for a lot of you!
