Epic Rides is honored to announce Dave Wiens as our dedication recipient as we celebrate a Decade in the Desert at the 10th Annual Kona Bikes 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo. Known to many in the world of knobby tires as “Wiensy”, Wiens will be the guest of honor and a speaker at the Exchange Tent Dedication Dinner on Friday, February 13th!

Dave, the consummate good guy of mountain biking, has been successfully representing the industry since the early 80s. He was most recently highlighted after his win at the 2008 Leadville 100 Race Across the Sky, which is arguably one of America’s most difficult endurance events. Dave rode Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong off his wheel while claiming his 6th consecutive Leadville win.

For a complete list of Wiensy’s accomplishments click here. The Vanilla Gorilla, as he’s known by friends, currently resides in Gunnison, CO with his wife, fellow-mountain-bike-hall-of-fame inductee Susan Demattei-Wiens, and their three children.

Epic Rides invites you to kick off your Old Pueblo weekend on Friday evening with the Vanilla Gorilla and some of his friends as we enjoy a warm dinner prepared fresh by Blue Banjo BBQ inside the exchange tent and get to know Dave’s thoughts on the past, present and future of mountain biking.

$15 admits one; the evening will kick-off with a social hour at 6:00p on February 13th, dinner and guest speakers at 7:00p (we’ll even tuck ya in around the campfire after 8:30p). Each ticket includes dinner, some drinks and casual Sonoran style entertainment.
