    "Laps for Lavender" August 25th 2012

    "Laps for Lavender"
    August 25th, 2012
    Crested Butte Mountain Resort

    In April of 2012 Adam Lavender, our good friend and teammate, suffered a life-changing mountain bike injury.
    Adam’s positive attitude, incredible strength, and support from his family and friends will keep him going
    through these difficult times; however, the financial and emotional stress of the situation is undeniable.
    On August 25th, Grassroots Cycles and Crested Butte Mountain Resort would like to invite you to “Laps for
    Lavender,” an 8-hour endurance downhill charity event inspired by Adam’s love of endurance downhill racing.
    We hope you will join us at one of Colorado’s best resorts for an amazing weekend of racing, all in the name of
    supporting Adam and his family. Crested Butte Mountain Resort is donating the use of their mountain for this
    event; therefore, 100% of entry fees will go directly to the Lavender family!
    Please visit for event details, registration, or just to make a donation. We’ll see you in
    Crested Butte to throw down some Laps for Lavender!

    Auction- In addition to the race, we're auctioning off several HUGE items that were donated by our caring sponsors. The auctions will go live August 18th at 9pm and conclude August 25th during our after party. Links to these auctions will be listed here once they are online. Here's some of what will be up for grabs:

    Deity: StreetSweeper Frame
    Paul Basagoitia's Autographed Red Bull Helmet
    DT Swiss: Wheelset
    Much more to come....

    Garage Sale- Donate your old, useful gear that has been collecting dust! We'll have a garage sale (open to the public), and all of the money goes to the Lavenders. Backpacks, old derailleurs, tents, handlebars, camping chairs... Likewise, don't forget to bring some cash in case you find something you'd like to buy!
    Opens at 9am Friday the 24th. Drop off your items here at Grassroots Cycles in Grand Junction up until Wednesday, or anytime Friday or Saturday in Crested Butte. Sale will end Saturday night after the party is over.
