Come ride with Juli, our Guest of Honor, on an epic ride in the birthplace of mountain biking on Sunday, September 7, 2014.

    Juli Furtado is one of the most accomplished women mountain bikers. She is a 3x World Cup Overall Champion and current record holder for most World Cup wins. She represented the USA in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta and went on to create the first women's specific mountain bike.

    MCBC Dirt Fondos offer a taste of Marin's bike legal trail network, which includes world-class views and challenging trails and fire roads. The off-road Fondo is well supported and participants will enjoy riding with some of the pioneers of mountain biking, including Gary Fisher, Joe Breeze and Otis Guy. Other VIPs include Shine Riders Pro Lauren Gregg and NorCal Executive Director Vanessa Hauswald. There is incredible ride support along the entire route, a tasty gourmet BBQ at the end of the rides and all participants receive a free MCBC Dirt Fondo t-shirt.

    I've seen Julie around town here in Santa Cruz a couple times and it's so weird because 99.9% of people have no idea they are in the presence of an Olympian.

    Sure wish we didn't have plans to be riding in Ashland that day. She kicked butt back in the day, and a damn fine deserving champion that mountain biking can be very proud to have in its history of the " greats" that graced the racing scene.
    Good friction shifting is getting hard to find nowadays....
