Summer in the Berkshires – the Pros head to Pedro’s Fest 2007
Alison Dunlap, Sue Haywood, Barry Wicks, Jeff Lenosky just to name a few!
For mountain bike fans, summer in the Berkshires can only mean one thing – Pedro’s Festival and this year, as in years past, the pros are making their travel plans now to kick back, ride, camp and enjoy the show and their biking brethren at the 13th Annual western Massachusetts gathering.
This year’s Festival features something special for every rider from the moment the gates open. Perennial Festival favorites, Iron Horse’s Brian Bartlett and Simon Lawton kick the weekend off in style on Friday morning with a downhill clinic that’s sure to attract a crowd. Trek VW gets things started for the ladies with National Champion Sue Haywood’s women’s only ride. Trek VW’s Lea Davidson will be down from her Little Bells’s girls mountain biking camp in Vermont to instruct and ride with the kids.
DirtRag’s Maurice Tierney keeps things interesting by offering an expert ride at intermediate pace while the legendary Jeff Lenosky offers entertainment throughout the weekend with Trials Demos and Rides. Kona’s Barry Wicks will be serving up both xc and cyclocross options and for those seeking more cerebral late afternoon options, Trek VW’s Sue Haywood and former World Champion LunaChix Alison Dunlap offer autograph signings and chats on Friday and Saturday afternoons.
The weekend sees the LunaChix out in force, with Alison Dunlap offering numerous Women’s Skills clinics and Rides along with her fellow teammates, Roz Puleo, Stephanie Goodell and Anne Noga.
Some of the pros can’t actually be at the Festival so Trek has arranged for us to watch them with live satellite broadcasts of the Tour de France in the Trek Lounge.
As mastermind of this year’s Festival schedule Renee Hicks, says, “this year truly offers something for everyone. We’re bringing back big crowd favorites Brian Bartlett, Simon Lawton and Salem Mazzaway along with the offering the chance to ride with some of the biggest Luminaries in the sport. The Kids and Women’s offerings are really exciting this year too!”
