ERGON – TROUPE RACING CO – CRANK BROTHERS MTB RIDE

You would think SoCal would be sunny and warm, but that was not the case for the 2nd annual post Sea Otter MTB RIDE.  Members of Crank Brothers, Team Topeak-Ergon, and Troupe Racing Co met up at 4 PM in Laguna Beach for would be a chilly and wet ride.  West wind blasting off the ocean made the 50F temps feel darn right chilly!  10 hearty souls would take off at 4 PM for 2 hours of steep climbs, rip’n downhills, and a round of good laughs.
