Matt Page wins 24 Hours of Exposure becoming British and European Champion

Matt, a friend of Ergon for many years, and a firm believer in our products won 24 Hours of Exposure becoming British and European Champion solo rider.  It was an extremely hard race, and very close at times (I know, I was there and stayed up all night to watch).  Matt switched from Ergon GX1 to GS1 (the marathon grip) the week prior to the race.  He told me “normally I would never change something so close to the race, but I trust Ergon.  It is one of the few companies which I trust.”

After the race, very emotional he thanked us for our work and all the support.  My response was that we did very little by comparison!  His opinion of the GS “It is the best that you guys have ever done.  I didn’t think there would be such a difference to the GX1, or that a grip could be so much better than what I had considered was the yardstick”.

The video here is great.

Ergon is very proud of Matt’s achievements.  As am I.

TOPEAK-ERGON USA REPORT: BRECK-EPIC STAGE RACE

Posted in EVENTS, RACING, TOPEAK-ERGON on August 30, 2010 by ergonusa

August 21-27
Breckenridge, Colorado, USA

The Breck-Epic Stage Race is in its 2nd year and is quickly becoming known as the hardest stage race on the planet.  With 6 stages, 250 miles, and 42,000 ft of climbing, the Breck-Epic is a solid test of fitness and equipment.  Unlike other stage races, the Breck-Epic starts and finishes each day in Breckenridge, CO.

For 2010, Sonya Looney and Jeff Kerkove teamed up in the Coed Duo class.  Competing against 6 other coed teams, Sonya and Jeff set off on a stiff pace and took 1st place on Stage 1.  Continueing their consistent pace for the remainder of the week, Sonya and Jeff would go on to win all 6 stages of the Breck-Epic, and take the overall win against the other charging coed teams.

“Racing with a partner was new to me, but Sonya and I have done a lot of training rides together so we ‘clicked’ very well in this format of racing”, stated Jeff post race.  “ We were also lucky to have great sponsor equipment as we made it through the entire week with no flat tires or other mechanical issues.”

Sonya following the race was excited with the team’s results…..”The Breck Epic was an adventure, and it was great to take it on with a great teammate. Taking the win of a 6-day event felt more rewarding than a one-day event because I knew how much we put into it, all the pedal strokes.  I loved all the stages and I can’t wait to race another stage race!”

RESULTS
Sonya Looney and Jeff Kerkove, Coed Duo, 1st place overall

BRECK-EPIC: STAGE 6

Posted in EVENTS, RACING, TOPEAK-ERGON on August 28, 2010 by ergonusa

The Breck-Epic might be the hot new stage race after this year.  With an international field tackling the thin air and ripping singletrack of Breckenridge, CO…..word is traveling fast across the World how great this event is….and will become.  Stage 6 took riders on a 32 mile loop.  By far the easiest course of the week, racers still had to work hard to complete the stage after 5 days of racing prior.  Here is the video of the loop as recorded by Team Topeak-Ergon:

Stage 6
What a great week for all the racers! A huge shout out to Sonya and Jeff of Team Topeak-Ergon for taking the overall win in the ‘coed duo’ race!
