Names of famous mountain bikers needed ASAP.
I have a grant proposal due at a few hours. We are developing a bike skills park and this grant application is to a community foundation in a liberal area with grant focus on kids recreation. We're not sure if mentioning former president Bush is a help or hurt. My search for "famous mountain bikers" here didn't get a thing???
Anybody have a quick list of famous dirt riders?
I'll be searching too but am juggling work and the deadline so help would be appreciated.
P.S. Round 1 of application limits all answers to 500 words not making it any easier.
Famous mountain bikers, or famous people who mountain bike?
He's been know to race a mountain bike now and than................
Thanks, famous people who ride a mountain bikes.

They'd have to be pretty bitter not to appreciate that W rode a bike for fun/fitness. Gary Fisher is pretty well known these days in Wisconsin? There was a thread not all that long ago with a list of celebrities who mountain bike....here it is celebrities who ride...

It's ok to use George Bush's name, as long as you don't make it the only name.
Sammy Hagar, at least a couple of guys from the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Paris Hilton.
"Thank you, microbreweries, for making my alcoholism seem like a neat hobby."
04 Stumpjumper Expert Disc
10 Marin San Rafael
Olympic bronze medalist Susan DeMattei
I found these using "famous people who ride mountain bikes" on Google, except for Susan, who is a long time hero.

Also, I remember reading that Lebron James rides. He sunk a bit of change into Cannondale a while back, IIRC. And Dee Snyder from Twisted Sister had his own signature 24" cruiser model once upon a time called the Widowmaker:
"I wanna Rock...hopper." Sorry. So sorry.
Oh, and also, it seems this topic has been covered here before:
Rick James was a friend of the owner of Marin Bikes. His first gig after his release from prison was at a party sponsored by Marin Bikes at the Interbike trade show in Anaheim.
Btw I do know the OP does not need names now.
